 won the Golden Bear in 2004, is returning to the Berlinale with a film that depicts the true story of Fritz "Fiete" Honk, a serial killer who murdered four women in Hamburg’s red-light district in the 1970s.

 by Emin Alper. The Turkish director’s third feature follows the story of Reyhan, Nurhan and Havva, who reunite in the modest house of their biological father after having been raised by foster families in the city. Finding themselves in a remote mountain village, they all yearn to return to the city as soon as possible.

Another Golden Bear contender that the company will be negotiating deals for is So Long, My Son by Wang Xiaoshuai. The Chinese director, whose Beijing Bicycle won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2001 Berlinale, returns to the festival with a movie that traces the lives of two parents who part ways after the loss of their child, over three decades of social and political upheaval. 

Furthermore, The Match Factory is on board as sales agent for Ritesh Batra’s Photograph, which will be presented as a Special Gala screening at the Berlinale, following its world premiere at the ongoing Sundance Film Festival. Set in Mumbai, the film centres on a struggling street photographer who, pressured by his grandmother to get married, persuades a shy stranger to pose as his fiancée.

A further title that the Cologne-based company will be negotiating deals for is Flatland [+lire aussi :

 by Jenna Cato Bass, which will celebrate its world premiere in this year’s Panorama section. After premiering High Fantasy in last year’s Generation 14plus, the South African director returns to the gathering with a film that follows the story of three different, but equally desperate, women. The movie questions what it means to be a woman in a hostile frontier land, but also in the world at large. 

At Berlin, The Match Factory will also be presenting Xaver Böhm’s O Beautiful Night [+lire aussi :
