in the main competition only last year and this time inspired by the true story of healer Jan Mikolasek, will take place as part of the newly redesigned Berlinale Special Gala section – now incorporating non-competing films. Unspooling as an integral part of the 70th Berlin International Film Festival (20 February-1 March), they will be joined by the documentary series Hillary by Nanette Burstein, fresh from Sundance, Last and First Men by late Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, to be narrated by Tilda Swinton, and another documentary, this time hailing from China: Swimming Out Till the Sea Turns Blue, directed by Jia Zhang-ke, showing prominent Chinese writers and scholars gathering in a village in his home province of Shanxi.

“Agnieszka Holland and Johnny Depp – two cinema models meet and not only tell of the past, but also create an interpretation of the present,” commented artistic director Carlo Chatrian. “This is also the case with Jia Zhang-ke and his dialogues with various generations of Chinese writers, and it’s similarly so with Hillary Clinton, the protagonist of the series of the same name, as is the case with the visionary elegy by Jóhann Jóhannsson.” The same section will also host the international premiere of Matteo Garrone’s Pinocchio [+leggi anche:

The Eddy, Netflix’s newest production created by Jack Thorne, will see the likes of Cold War [+leggi anche:

’s Joanna Kulig and Moonlight’s André Holland join forces in the story of a bandleader fighting to save his ailing Parisian jazz club.

Recognisable faces will also grace Stateless, with Yvonne Strahovski, Jai Courtney and Cate Blanchett herself serving as an actress, executive producer and co-creator of the show, while How I Met Your Mother alumnus Jason Segel will also stretch many different muscles as the creator, executive producer and actor of Dispatches from Elsewhere – a show about a mysterious institute promising a swift escape from one’s daily routine, also starring Sally Field and Richard E Grant.
