The Berlinale has announced a raft of new titles for its Generation and Series strands. In detail, this year’s Generation Kplus and 14plus will include 24 features and 28 shorts. Described as a selection exploring how young people “perceive the world, how they appropriate it or how they oppose it”, this section’s titles promise to tell “of the power to move mountains that is inherent in them”. The list comprises 12 debut features and a ratio of over 50% female directors, offering “a wide range of cinematic forms and perspectives”.

Meanwhile, the 14plus selection includes one fiction feature – Julia Trofimova’s The Land of Sasha (Russia), wherein “two idiosyncratic characters [Sasha and Zenya]” will “explore their feelings, talents and fears together” – and two non-fiction features: Clare Weiskopf and Nicolas van Hemelryck’s Alis [+lire aussi :

(Germany). The former documentary focuses on ten young women residing in a home for girls from the streets of Bogotá, where they talk about their roommate, called Alis, who embodies “the sum of their experiences, their longings and their struggles”. The second doc aims to paint “a different picture of Berlin” and centres on the titular boy from the prefabricated housing projects along the Allee der Kosmonauten.

Next, the Berlinale Series strand will host seven world premieres and will boast a strong Nordic presence. Commenting on this year’s line-up, the head of Berlinale Series, Julia Fidel, highlighted “a return to well-established formats: crime scenes, courtrooms, hospitals and international espionage”.

The much-anticipated Nordic series are Lone Scherfig’s The Shift [+lire aussi :

(Iceland), a crime series following a young policewoman returning to the small-minded society of her childhood, who is forced to uncover a potential murder case and some painful memories; and Ella Lemhagen’s “unflinching glimpse into the erotic experiences, sexual woes and needs of a group of girlfriends in their mid-forties”, Lust (Sweden – see the news).

The other two titles are Michal Blaško’s Suspicion [+lire aussi :
