War on Everyone by John Michael McDonagh

Twelve titles have arrived as pathfinders in the line-up of the Panorama section of the 66th Berlin Film Festival (11-21 February 2016), in the fiction category, accompanied by two documentaries, both of which are European-American co-productions. 

Among the 12 films, seven are European, in addition to one co-production.

by Omer Fast. It should also be noted that the section will host the first Ghanaian fiction ever to be presented at Berlin. 

For the time being, the organisers are describing the films as diverse and astonishing, and list denial and male sensitivity among the themes covered – the latter is a very apt motif, as the festival is celebrating the 30th edition of the Teddy Award this year.
