Full line-up of 54 films

The selection for the Panorama section at the forthcoming Berlinale, whose dominant theme this year is the past and its influence on the present, is now complete, with a total of 54 films representing 29 countries (18 in the main programme, 16 in Panorama Special and 20 documentaries), including 17 debut films.

Besides the titles already announced (see news), the main programme, which will open with Russian director Felix Mikhailov’s Jolly Fellows, has had another Russian film added to it, as well as two European films (Berlin-born Andreas Kleinert’s Barriere [+see also:
