New films from Jonathan Perel and Max Linz are among 17 new titles added to the Forum section at the 2022 Berlinale; while the Classics section has programmed seven digitally restored titles ahead of next month’s festival.
Argentinian filmmaker Jonathan Perel will participate with the world premiere of documentary Camouflage, about a writer who embodies a man with an obsession with Argentina’s biggest military unit.
Perel’s previous films include Berlinale 2020 title Corporate Responsibility.
German director Linz is in the festival with the world premiere of his new film L’Etat Et Moi, starring Sophie Rois, Jeremy Mockridge and Hauke Heumann.
Linz’s previous work include the 2019 comedy drama Music and Apocalypse, which played in the Forum at the Berlinale.
The Classics section will present world premieres of seven digital restorations, including Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Mamma Roma in the centenary of his birth; plus Notre Musique from Jean-Luc Godard; and Ken Russell’s 1975 rock opera Tommy.
The titles are in addition to the first run of Forum selections, announced last month.
The festival will take place in-person from February 10-16; while the concurrent European Film Market will run online again this year, with details revealed last week to Screen.
