Il Forum della Berlinale preferisce il rischio alla perfezione
Earth di Nikolaus Geyrhalter

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Forum will be celebrating its 49th edition during the 69th Berlin International Film Festival (7-17 February 2019), curated – after Christoph Terhechte stepped down this summer, following 17 successful editions – by an interim directorate consisting of the members of the board of directors of Arsenal - Institute for Film and Video Art, which originally instigated this programme and has been organising it ever since. Said members are Milena GregorBirgit Kohler and Stefanie Schulte Strathaus.

The ambition that the independent section has always possessed – that is, to reflect on the medium of film, and expand the understanding of what it is and how it relates to the world, pushing "the boundaries of convention" in terms of form as well as message – is reaffirmed in this year's programme, the concept of which is not to present a "best of" list, but rather to gather together a selection of films "that try things out, take a stance and refuse to compromise", including by exploring other art forms besides film.

The main programme consists of 39 movies, 31 of which will screen as world premieres. Sixteen of these titles are European, and nine more are European co-productions. The whole selection includes many literary adaptations or works teeming with references to literature, such as a Super 8 silent-film version of Elfriede Jelinek’s ghost novel The Children of the Dead, an opulent rendition of Robert Musil's novella The Portuguese Woman [+leggi anche:

 and an essayistic collage called An Open Rose, based on Rosa Luxemburg’s letters from prison, to mention but a few. As is customary, the documentary form is being granted a special place in the Forum section, represented, for instance, by two well-known European names in the field: Nikolaus Geyrhalter with Earth [+leggi anche:
