, which will show the adventure born of one summer night in Paris; Surge, with Ben Whishaw as a young man living a life of unbearable monotony until one day he embarks on a trip through Central London; and Father, described by the festival as “a moving tale about inequality”, focusing on a man whose children are taken away by social services.

Protagonists experiencing dramatic changes will also appear in Minyan, all about New York in the 1980s, with a young boy looking for happiness outside of his rigid Jewish community, as well as Mogul Mowgli, with comedian Riz Ahmed (who also co-wrote the script) starring as a British rapper, whose big break is undercut by an illness that brings him back to something he tried his best to escape – his family and its Pakistani traditions.

, this time in Mare – showing a woman resignedly dedicated to her family, until a sudden encounter awakens the needs she had already considered dormant.

In the documentary field, the Swedish title Always Amber by Lia Hietala and Hannah Reinikainen will spotlight a new generation no longer interested in being constrained by fixed gender roles, while Teboho EdkinsDays of Cannibalism [+lee también:

will show Chinese merchants fighting for supremacy with Basotho cattle breeders, trying their best to preserve their traditions. The Brazilian – and black-and-white – movie Amazon Mirror will bring us closer to those living next to the world’s largest hydroelectric plants in Amazonia, struggling to make ends meet, and thanks to some never-before-seen footage, Bettina Böhler will tell the story of artist Christoph Schlingensief in Schlingensief – A Voice That Shook the Silence, inviting the one and only Udo Kier along for the ride.

I Dream of Singapore promises an unflinching look at the life of migrant workers in Southeast Asia, and The Foundation Pit by Andrey Gryazev gives found footage a brand-new spin – by compiling YouTube videos of people addressing president Putin, angrily or adoringly, reflecting various moods felt all over the country. Finally, Karim Aïnouz, who not so long ago made quite an impact with The Invisible Life of Eurídice Gusmão [+lee también:

– now turns his attention to a young Algerian female activist in Nardjes A.

Back to fiction, albeit in this case inspired by a real-life phenomenon, in One of These Days, Carrie Preston and Joe Cole will be joining in with the Texan “Hands on a Hardbody” competition, with contestants standing around a pickup truck for days, touching it with one hand.

will show an uneasy return to a place that was once called home, as a woman fights for her grandmother’s olive grove, even if it means standing up to her father, and Francisco Márquez’s A Common Crime [+lee también:

will point out social injustice through the story of a woman whose refusal to let her housekeeper’s son into the house has tragic consequences. Last but not least, Dry Wind will riff on the unforgettable Tom of Finland, as a man who looks exactly like the character from the sexually charged drawings suddenly shows up in a small town.

“The Panorama programme is emblematic of the urgent need for political action and civil disobedience. Filmmakers and protagonists are standing up against the authorities,” said Michael Stütz, chosen as the new section head. “Russian citizens who have been left behind socially stagger between neo-imperialist subservience and making angry accusations against their president. A young woman whacks patriarchal dominance in the face with a shovel. And, in Sweden, self-determined young people are defining their own gender. They are all engaged in a search, stimulating change and breaking out. The films display the power of resistance and the scope of what is possible.”

Berlinale Special has also advertised some brand-new things on offer, embracing genre filmmaking with High Ground, a western developed in close collaboration with Australia’s indigenous communities, and Time to Hunt – a South Korean thriller boasting the participation of Parasite’s Choi Woo-shik. Oleg Sentsov himself will present Numbers, based on his eponymous 2011 play, and Golda Maria, a documentary about the titular Holocaust survivor, directed by both her grandson and great-grandson, Patrick and Hugo Sobelman, will take an intimate look at the past. Finally, Courtney Stephens and Pacho Velez will come along clutching The American Sector, recounting the odd journey of the fragments of the Berlin Wall scattered across the USA.
