That Summer by Göran Hugo Olsson

While the organisers of Berlin International Film Festival welcome the selection of four of its 2017 official program films (read the news here) in the Oscar nominations pre-list for Best Foreign Language Film, the preliminary eleven titles selected for the 68th Panorama (15 to 25 February 2018) have been announced.

The important section at the Berlinale and the first programme curated by new section head Paz Lázaro together with Michael Stütz and Andreas Struck (Wieland Speck, who directed the Panorama for 25 years, is now a consultant), focuses on disobedience, anti-machismo and the body in motion.
