Filmmaker Fatih Akin, whose new film "Head-On" opens tomorrow in Los Angeles, is of Turkish descent and was raised in Germany. He takes a more willful view of national pride, though. "It's like hip-hop," Akin said recently by phone from his hometown of Hamburg. "I sample what I need and what I don't need I don't use. I love Turkey, but Germany is my home. I don't have the burden of a Nazi past, but at the same time I am really proud of Goethe and Kant."
