WHEN THE WAR COMES by Jan Gebert
 (Czech Republic, Croatia 2018) PANORAMA DOKUMENTE

Peter lives a seemingly happy life. He drives a new white SUV, has a pretty girlfriend and recently enrolled at university. However, his real life is elsewhere – as the head of a paramilitary called “Slovenskí branci” that recruits hundreds of Slovak teenagers with the silent approval of the authorities. The group’s goal is simple - to create a model totalitarian community based on military drill, obedience and fear. Peter dreams that one day he will convince the entire society- as a big shot politician.

THE INTERPRETER by Martin Šulík
 (Slovakia, Czech Republic, Austria 2018) BERLINALE SPECIAL

80-year-old Ali Ungar comes across a book by a former SS officer describing his wartime activities in Slovakia. He realises his parents were executed by him. He sets out to take revenge but finds instead his 70-year-old son, Georg, a retired teacher. Georg who had avoided his father all his life, decides to find out more about him and offers Ali to be his interpreter. The two old men that everything opposes embark on a bittersweet journey to meet surviving witnesses of the wartime tragedy. They discover a country eager to forget its past. They realise their memories are fragments mixed with their imagination and interpretation. They connect in silence and manage to discover their own identity.

TOUCH ME NOT by Adina Pintilie
 (Romania, Germany, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, France 2018) COMPETITION

Tell me how you loved me, so I understand how to love. Together, a filmmaker and her characters venture into a personal research about intimacy. On the fluid border between reality and fiction, Touch Me No follows the emotional journeys of Laura, Tomas and Christian, offering a deeply empathic insight into their lives. Craving for intimacy yet also deeply afraid of it, they work to overcome old patterns, defense mechanisms and taboos, to cut the cord and finally be free. Touch Me Not looks at how we can find intimacy in the most unexpected ways, at how to love another without losing ourselves.
