La section Forum de Berlin slalome entre fiction et documentaire
Anamnesis de Chris Wright et Stefan Kolbe

Cet article est disponible en anglais.

The 17-film selection of the Berlinale Forum focuses on works that deal with uncertainties in the world outside by embracing unpredictability in their plots and structures, and by mixing fiction and documentary forms. It gives preference to the fragile over the proven, with more space dedicated to filmmakers at the start of their careers than their more established colleagues.

The European (co-)productions include Uldus Bakhtiozina's Tzarevna Scaling (Russia), Moumouni Sanou's Night Nursery [+lire aussi :

The Forum Expanded is experimenting this year with a selection that consists of four short-film selections, one medium-length film and two feature-length titles (one of them, Seven Years Around the Nile Delta by Egyptian director Sharief Zohairy, clocks in at 331 minutes), with a total of 18 films to be shown in March. Eight installations will also be on display in June.

As for the Berlinale Shorts, the 20 titles from 17 countries feature different formal languages and range from fictional formats to experimental films, animations, hybrid and documentary forms. “Art, and film in particular, allows us to see the world through different eyes. It helps us to experience reality through someone else’s perception, to rethink it and to find our place within it,” says Anna Henckel-Donnersmarck, section head of Berlinale Shorts. “At the same time, it requires a sounding board, an audience, so that what is said can find its echo and continue to reverberate.”

As a reminder, the EFM will take place from 1-5 March, whereas the Berlinale Summer Special will unspool later in the year, from 9-20 June.
