‘Damsel’

Another ten films have joined the Competition of the 68th edition of the Berlin International Film Festival (Feb 15 - 25). Three more have also been selected for the programme of the Berlinale Special.

Joining the eight Competition films and two Berlinale Special titles are 13 productions from Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hong Kong - China, Iran, Ireland, Luxembourg, Norway, Paraguay, People’s Republic of China, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Uruguay, and the USA.

Joining the main competition are Barbara and Phoenix director Christian Petzold’s new drama Transit, a contemporary reworking of Anna Seghers’ 1944 novel about refugees attempting to flee through Marseille after the Nazi invasion of France in 1940. The film stars Frantz breakout Paula Beer.

Also new to competition is David and Nathan Zellner’s Damsel, the western about a US businessman who travels to join his fiancée in the mountains, starring Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska. Emily Atef’s latest movie 3 Days In Quiberon is also among movies set to compete for the Berlin Golden Bear.

Lance Daly’s drama Black 47, starring Hugo Weaving, James Frecheville, Barry Keoghan and Jim Broadbent, is among those to get an out of competition world premiere.

Set in Ireland during the Great Famine, the drama follows an Irish Ranger named Feeney, who has been fighting for the British Army abroad, as he abandons his post to reunite with his family. Despite experiencing the horrors of war, Feeney is shocked by the famine’s destruction of his homeland and the brutalisation of his people and his family. When Feeney sets on a destructive path to avenge his kin, an ageing British soldier is sent to stop him.

The festival will also host the European premiere of Chinese box office hit Monster Hunt 2, starring Tony Leung.
