Berlinale Shorts 1

Stadtmuseum / Moi Rai | Circle | Adieu tortue | Oiseau de passage

An essay film that describes the city as a subjective paradise in which systems of order and chaos constantly override each other. An ode to chaos, hidden signs and the city as an eternal palimpsest.

A girl draws a circle on the ground. Passers-by step into it, one by one. Soon the circle is full of people.

Five-year-old Inci wanders alone through the vast hilly landscape by the Black Sea. Her mother has just died. When she meets the adult Zeynep, she decides to follow her.

A body is floating in the water. A strange bird is calling and memories come alive again. “Where were you when I was in despair?”, asks the friend.

Re tian wu hou | Kaalkapje | Al sol, lejos del centro | Jing guo

China at the end of the 1990s, lunch in an extended family. The father works in distant Shenzhen and is rarely home. The grandmother cooks and keeps an eye on the children. The air is filled with levity, longing and exhaustion.

Through the lens of her father’s camera, she looks back at a period of her childhood of which she can remember nothing. Twenty years after surviving cancer, she searches for traces of the illness between scars and desires.

Santiago in the shimmering summer heat. High-res images undergo a digital zoom which transforms spaces into surfaces and houses into textures. In between, there are the small gestures of everyday urban life. And two women in search of a place for their love.

He pays him a visit during his work trip to Europe. They have not seen each other since 2015, back in Beijing. This might be the last time they meet.

Tako Tsubo | We Will Not Be the Last of Our Kind | City of Poets | Shi ri fang gu

Mr. Ham decides to have his heart removed to free himself from his complicated emotions. The doctor assures him that, in this day and age, this procedure no longer poses a problem.

What if the famous biblical ark, the last refuge of humankind and the animal kingdom during the great flood, was not merely an act of divine intervention but, instead, a meticulously planned programme for professional reintegration?

In a small, semi-utopian city, all the streets are named after poets. When war begins, new neighbourhoods emerge to accommodate the refugees. Now, the streets are named after soldiers.

An elaborate fashion shoot is planned on the beach, but the backdrop built in advance has been swallowed by the sea overnight. While the young assistant tries every means possible to find it again, the film slowly slips into the magical.
