Writing about the Berlinale, we have always taken care to have a look at the festival program outside of the movies that will end up in cinema for sure. Movies and projects that might be a little off or come from strange places, telling stories beyond or against the expectations. For this reason I took a look at a program that was launched by the Venice Film Festival in 2012, where the Festival funds a feature-length film with 150.000 Euro, that has to be made in ten months and presented at the Festival. I expected something rough and maybe interesting. I didn’t expect to be really taken in by Alena Lodkinas ‚Strange Colours‘.
