BERLIN — Brazilian filmmaker Bruno Barreto (“Last Stop 174”) and directing duo Scott McGehee and David Siegel (“Uncertainty”) will be honored at the upcoming Filmfest Oldenburg, which runs Sept. 16-20.

Barreto, who in addition to his work in Brazil also made such U.S. films as drama “Carried Away” and political thriller “A Show of Force,” will be the subject of this year’s retrospective.

In addition to Barreto’s U.S. films, the fest will unspool a selection of his Brazilian works, including his 1973 directorial debut “Tati, the Girl,” the 1976 hit “Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands,” 1997’s “Four Days in September,” 2000’s “Bossa Nova” 2005’s “Romeo and Juliet Get Married” and his most recent, the fact-based “Last Stop 174.”

The fest is also paying homage to McGehee and Siegel as part of its Tribute showcase and will present their latest work, “Uncertainty,” starring Lynn Collins and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Also screening are the filmmakers’ debut feature, 1994’s “Suture,” 2001’s “The Deep End,” which stars Tilda Swinton as a mother out to protect her son, and the 2005 family drama “Bee Season,” with Juliette Binoche and Richard Gere.

Barreto, McGehee and Siegel will be on hand in Oldendburg to present their films.
