Berlin sidebar unveils entries

Diverse blend of films planned for Perspektive Deutsches Kino

Survival in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, love triangles and prostitution characterize the first selections of the German sidebar at the Berlin Film Festival, which runs Feb. 11-21.

Dietrich Brueggemann’s relationship drama “Renn, wenn du kannst” (Run If You Can) opens the Perspektive Deutsches Kino, which focuses on new German cinema, particularly work from film students and first-time directors.

“Run If You Can” stars the helmer’s sister, Anna Brueggemann. It’s Dietrich Brueggemann’s second Perspektive screener after 2006’s “Nine Takes.”

Also unspooling is Linus de Paoli’s modern take on the Western, “The Boy Who Wouldn’t Kill,” about a boy, played by up-and-coming thesp Pit Bukowski (“Dorf-punks”) and his family trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic desert.

Saara Waasner’s documentary “Frauenzimmer” presents a portrait of aging hookers reflecting on their lives and careers.

Other screeners include Christian Hornung’s doc “Gleb’s Movie,” about a Hamburg hair stylist who dreams of making a film; Jan Raiber’s autobiographical “In Alle meine Vaeter” (All My Fathers); and “Hollywood Drama,” young actor-director Sergei Moya’s satire about Germany’s new generation of filmmakers.

Upcoming fest will be the last for Perspektive director Alfred Holighaus, who is stepping down to take on a management position with the German Film Academy.
