Berlin's 41st Generation is dreaming with its eyes wide open
303 by Hans Weingartner

This 41st edition of Generation, the youth section at Berlin Film Festival which uncovers beautiful films made by the younger generation, will focus on the theme of "on true fairy tales and magical realities." As its director, Maryanne Redpath, pointed out, the idea is to share stories that children and young people can relate to, and that can help them understand life, the world and its difficulties, while forging their own cinematic culture and offering them a beautiful and joyous adventure that will hopefully inspire them to continue to watch films.
