Check out the trailer for Fabian: Going to the Dogs, an upcoming film by Dominik Graf.
Set in Berlin in 1931, Jakob Fabian works in the advertising department of a cigarette factory by day and drifts through bars, brothels, and artist studios with his wealthy and debauched friend Labude by night. When Fabian meets the beautiful and confident Cornelia, he manages to shed his pessimistic attitude for a brief moment and falls in love. Not long after, he falls victim to the great wave of layoffs sweeping the city, plunging him back into a depression, while Cornelia’s career as an actress is taking off thanks to her wealthy boss and admirer – an arrangement that Fabian finds difficult to accept. But it’s not just his world that is falling apart.
Fabian: Going to the Dogs opens on February 11 in New York at Metrograph before opening in Los Angeles on March 4 at the Laemmle Royal and Town Center 5, with more cities to follow.
