Berlin Film Festival to Feature Journey Into Indigenous Latin American Culture

By 21 January, 2015

This year’s Berlin Film Festival, taking place 5th-15th February 2015, will feature a whole programme devoted to Latin American culture. The NATIVe segment is an ever-present at Berlinale, always focusing on indigenous culture from different parts of the world.

For this year’s edition NATIVe will shine its light on Latin America with a wide-ranging selection of films representing the continent’s indigenous populations. The series will open with the stunning documentary Eco De La Montaña (Echo of the Mountain, 2014) by Mexican director Nicholás Echevarría. Other highlights will include the world première of the restored version of Raúl Tosso’s Gerónima (1986/2015), the world première of Venezuelan film Lo Que Lleva El Río (Gone with the River, 2014), Claudia Llosa’s Madeinusa and Yvy Maraey (Land Without Evil), a new “philosophical road movie” by Bolivian director Juan Carlos Valdivia.
