Berlin Film Festival Unveils Movies in Kids and Teens Generation Section

The organizers of the Berlin Film Festival have announced 16 movies in the festival’s Generation category, which comprises projects aimed at younger viewers. Divided into Kplus and 14plus categories for under-14s and teens, respectively, this is the 41st edition of Generation.

“’Generation’ shows films that stay close to the daily lives and fields of experience of children and young people, frequently in challenging situations,” said section head Maryanne Redpath. “And we won’t ever tire of promoting a broader understanding of film for young viewers. At the same time, a visit to Generation has to be a joyful one, an adventure – and whet the appetite for more great cinema.”

Highlights in the Generation Kplus section include the world premieres of “Supa Modo,” a German-Kenyan production about a terminally ill girl who dreams of becoming a superhero, and which counts Tom Tykwer (“Babylon Berlin”) among its producers, and, from France, Stéphane Demoustier’s “Allons enfants (Cleo & Paul).”

In the Generation 14plus category there are four world premieres, including “303” from Germany, about two students on a road trip, and “Güvercin” (“The Pigeon”) from Turkey, which tells the story of a boy living in a slum and who finds peace looking after a pigeon.
