On the 9th day of the Berlinale, Johannes Lehnen talks about selecting the winner of the “Perspektive Deutsches Kino” award.
And the winner is…”Zwei Mütter”! Ok, ok, it wasn’t the Golden Bear. Actually it wasn’t a bear at all. But it was the trophy of the DFJW prizes. And that is, at least, the only prize in the category “Perspektive Deutsches Kino.” And then we couldn’t resist a bit of praiseworthy name-dropping. Santiago Gil created a short film that could not be overlooked with “Chiralia.” It was generally a very good year for “Perspektive,” and many of its films that weren’t premiered will come to the theaters. “Metamorphosen” contains minutes-long landscape takes and is in the process one of the most exciting documentaries that I have ever seen.
