The Berlinale's Perspektive Deutsches Kino sidebar, which showcases young and up-and-coming German film-makers with fresh ideas, approaches and talent, has become the latest section - after the Forum and Generation (Kplus/14plus) - to finalise its programme for the 2007 edition of the festival.
Another five films have been selected by programmer Alfred Holighaus to join the six titles which were made known at the end of last year.
Theyinclude a documentary portrait of Wim Wenders' early years as filmmaker by Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg student Marcel Wehn; Sonja Heiss' feature film with documentary elements Hotel Very Welcome to Astrid Schult's portrait of an eight-year-old boy mastering the challenges of everyday life in his own inimitable way in the tough Berlin suburb of Hellersdorf.
