New Wave, run by arthouse veterans Robert Beeson and Pam Engel, picked up two other titles in Berlin.

“Tabu” by Portugal’s Miguel Gomes, is the story of an illicit colonial love affair. It won the Fipresci International Critics Prize and Alfred Bauer Prize for Innovation.

Austrian director Julian Roman Poelsler’s “The Wand,” described as a contemporary female Robinson Crusoe story starring Martina Gedeck, took the Ecumenical Prize in the Panorama sidebar.
