69th Berlinale, 7 to 17 February 2019

The 69th Berlinale Film Festival was once again enriching and inspiring. This year, the Cinema group had the opportunity to watch three films at the Berlinale Palast. L 'adieu à la nuit of France is about the search of the younger generation for belonging and existential recognition; Di jiu tian chang of China shows a story of the renewed appreciation of family and friendship as the core of human coexistence; and Marighella of Brazil is based on the painful process of rebellion against the military dictatorship in 1960s. All of these themes address today's social issues. The directors and their teams were present on the site and communicated their ideas of the films with the audience.

The Cinema group is thrilled to be able to offer this special experience to its members and looking forward to the next Berlinale in 2020.
