Berlinale 2018: Panorama Adds Idris Elba’s ‘Yardie,’ Pedro Almodovar-Produced ‘The Silence of Others’

The 2018 Berlin Film Festival’s Panorama section has completed its lineup with the addition of films including “Yardie,” Idris Elba’s directorial debut; “The Silence of Others,” a documentary produced by Pedro Almodóvar; and “Lemonade,” produced by Cristian Mungiu.

Rolling off its world premiere at Sundance, “Yardie” is an adaptation of Victor Headley’s British cult novel about a young Jamaican who drifts into the drug-dealing underworld of 1980s London. The movie is being represented in international markets by Studiocanal.

Directed by Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar, “The Silence of Others” portrays survivors of crimes of Spain’s 40-year Fascist dictatorship, who seek justice and attempt to prosecute perpetrators. The documentary feature, which was filmed over four years and is produced by Almodovar, follows survivors and human rights lawyer on a journey to build an international lawsuit. “The Silence of Others” also explores how divided Spanish society remains over the Franco era, even after nearly four decades of democracy.

“Lemonade,” directed by Ioana Uricaru and mainly produced by Palme d’Or winning director Mungiu at Mobra Films, tells the tale of Mara, a 30-year-old Romanian single mother who marries an American man while in the U.S. on a temporary work visa. The process of getting a green card veers unexpectedly off course, and Mara is faced with stereotypes and abuses of power on every level. The role of Mara is played by Malina Manovici, the Romanian star of “Graduation,” which competed at Cannes in 2016 and earned Mungiu a best director prize (shared with Olivier Assayas for “Personal Shopper”).

Other notable titles which have been added to the Panorama lineup include Babak Jalali’s “Land” and Ursula Meier’s “Shock Waves – Diary of My Mind.”

The full Panorama lineup will comprise 47 films from 40 countries, including 37 world premieres and 16 directorial debuts.
