The Last Summer of the Rich by Peter Kern

The first few titles in the major Panorama section of the Berlin International Film Festival have been unveiled, split between the Fiction and Panorama Documentaries sidebars. These initial selections place equal emphasis on European productions, including the new film by Austrian director Peter Kern, and on titles hailing from the rest of the world, such as the feature debut by US filmmaker Justin Kelly, co-produced by Gus Van Sant and starring James Franco.

Within the sub-section dedicated to documentaries, and also hailing from the US, we find the “Yes Men”, who were already crowned with the Audience Award at Berlin in 2009 and will be back in the German capital for the third time to talk about global warming and rail against heavyweight Shell.
