 in competition in 2013). "I’m very proud to be working with Claire again – she’s one of today’s best French female filmmakers and is unfairly underrated, in my opinion," states Anaïs Clanet. 

A veritable ode to youth, Young Solitude portrays an important time for any individual, from 16-18 years of age. Set in the Paris suburbs in high school (for those lucky enough to go), teenagers chat after and even during class, sitting in the hallway or outside on a bench, looking at the city below them. Simon sets up a cinematic dialogue with the teens, speaking about their personal history, their family, but also their passions and loneliness. At this age, they start thinking about leaving their family, when there is one, and even run away from it when it’s completely broken. Being by yourself can bring as many good things as bad ones. This film becomes a place where they search for and discuss the meaning of all this. Young Solitude was staged by Sophie Dulac Productions, which will also be handling its French distribution.

Wide House will also be negotiating deals for another title that will get a world premiere in the Forum: The Waldheim Waltz [+lee también:

). This time, the director-producer looks into the lies and the truth surrounding the political rise to power of Kurt Waldheim, who was Secretary-General of the United Nations before becoming president of Austria, in spite of his controversial past.

The slate also includes A Journey to the Fumigated Towns by famous helmer Fernando Solanas (which will be unveiled in the Berlinale Special programme), who has been investigating the ramifications of Argentina’s agricultural model (soya, GMOs, health and environmental impacts, and so on), and The Green Lie [+lee también:
