The documentary “The Second Game” by Corneliu Porumboiu was selected within the 44th edition of Berlinale Forum. The Forum section of the International Berlin Film Festival presents annually a selection of movies focused on avant-garde, experimental works, essays, long-term observations, political reportage and yet-to-be-discovered cinematic landscapes. This year, the International Forum of New Cinema, Forum in short, will screen 28 world and 8 international premieres, the Romanian Cultural Institute in Berlin (ICR Berlin) reports. Well-known director Corneliu Porumboiu draws on a strikingly original form for his film The Second Game (Al Doilea Joc): together with his father, who worked as a football referee during the Ceausescu regime, he provides a commentary for the grainy VHS footage of a match between two football teams. The two interlocutors start a heated discussion on politics, repressions and memories. In addition, the Romanian-German co-production “The Forest is Like the Mountains” directed by Christiane Schmidt and Didier Guillian will also be screened at Berlinale Forum.
