Fatherland (released as Singing the Blues in Red in the USA) is a 1986 film about a German singer-songwriter, directed by Ken Loach and starring Gerulf Pannach, Fabienne Babe, Cristine Rose and Sigfrit Steiner.
The film is one of Loach's least-popular films, being referred to as "a heavy-handed and absurd political drama" in MIT's newspaper The Tech and Loach said in a 2016 Guardian interview that he "made a mess" of the film. As the film was partly in German, its audience was limited in English-speaking countries, where foreign-language films were uncommon in the 1980s. Between its cinematic release and the 2013 DVD release, the film was rare.
