More Films in the Berlinale Special 2012

As part of the Festival’s official programme, the Berlinale Special 2012 will be presenting recent works by contemporary filmmakers, film portraits of outstanding personalities, extraordinary formats and restored cinema masterpieces. In addition to the six films already announced (see press releases from Dec. 19, 2011, and Jan. 9, 2012), twelve more titles have been confirmed for this year’s Berlinale Special programme.

In 2012 talks will be hosted following the screenings of a number of Berlinale Special films. The venue for this new format is the movie theatre in the Haus der Berliner Festspiele at Schaperstraße 24. Besides Werner Herzog’s documentary film series Death Row and Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut In The Land Of Blood And Honey, these films include the documentaries Althawra… Khabar (Reporting … A Revolution) by Bassam Mortada, Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry by Alison Klayman, Hijos de las Nubes by Alvaro Longoria, Anton Corbijn Inside Out by Klaartje Quirijns as well as Chris Kenneally’s Side by Side, with Keanu Reeves.

At a matinée, the film The Life and Death Of Colonel Blimp (1943) by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger will be presented in a newly restored version.

Film director Mark Cousins will be showing his 900 minute-long documentary The Story Of Film: An Odyssey as a European premiere.
