Berlin's Panorama section has unveiled its full line-up across its main programme and the Special, Dokumente and Short Films strands.
The line-up comprises 34 features, 16 documentaries and 26 short films. The films are from 32 countries and include twelve directing debuts and 14 films which are to be digitally projected, two of them in High Definition.
The Panorama's main programme will open on Feb 5 with Walk On Water by Eytan Fox/Israel, the story of a reluctant Mossad agent and a blue-eyed German tourist who uncovers the truth about the "last Nazi".
The Panorama Special will open on February 6 with two films: the angst-driven arthouse indie A Problem With Fear by Gary Burns/Canada, and with Untold Scandal by E J-Young, rising star of Korean cinema.
The Panorama will also reflect the festival's special focus on Latin America with three political documentaries and two fiction features: Mexican director Felipe Cazals is returning to Berlin with Digna Hasta El Ultimo Aliento, and from Italy there is Che - The Last Hours by Romano Scavolini.
Three films will be screened from Brazil: the documentary Fala Tu by Guilherme Coelho and the features O Outro Lado Da Rua by Marcos Bernstein and Contra Todos by Roberto Moreira.
The Panorama jury comprises: Eva Zaoralova (Czech Republic, Artistic Director of the Karlovy Vary Film Festival), Tania Blanich (USA, Associate Director, National Video Resources, Rockefeller Foundation), and Eduardo Antin (Argentina, Director of the Buenos Aires Independent Film Festival).
