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. 

South American cinema is also well-represented, Argentina in particular, with two titles including a co-production with Europe, as well as Brazil, with three titles including a co-production with Germany and France: the documentary THF: Central Airport [+see also:

), about refugees living in the hangars of Berlin's former Tempelhof airport. Brazil is also represented by the Franco-Greek documentary Obscuro Barroco [+see also:

by Evangelia Kranioti, which details the life of the Brazilian transsexual icon, Luana Muniz.

The only other entirely European title selected for the Panorama is the Austrian feature film L'Animale, about a high school student and member of a motocross clique who is divided between his need to be part of a group and the weight of male domination.

Also of note is the return of Swedish director Göran Hugo Olsson (Black Power Mixtape [+see also:

, which brings together footage shot in 1972 by Peter Beard, Lee Radziwill (la soeur de Jackie O) and Andy Warhol.
