Latin American Films selected for the #Berlinale 2013 via @LatAmFilm
31 fictional features from 23 countries will provide insights into contemporary world cinema production, and this includes a number of works just invited from Turkey, Indonesia, India, Taiwan and the Ivory Coast.
A striking number of productions from the USA bring back memories of the early 1980s to the mid 1990s when US independent cinema was a trademark of the Panorama programme. The slump that followed seems to have been overcome. The last few years have successively heralded in a new creative phase that is now taking on form. Panorama is delighted to stay abreast of this development by including a record number of extremely diverse films from the region. Also Central and South America will be making a strong showing – it looks likes a good year for the Americas.
