Before the premiere of Competition film Macondo, presenter Loretta Stern welcomes up to 120 guests in the Audi Berlinale Lounge to take a glimpse behind the scenes of the Festival. Intriguing background information and a screening of the press conference will get everyone in the mood for the film.
Macondo – Ramasan from Chechnya lives with his mother and sister in a refugee camp in Vienna. When a friend of his father's turns up, the 11-year old is pulled into conflict. A film whose quiet tone and detailed observation lift it far above didacticism and cliché.
The event will take place in German.
