Holland’s film, about a faith healer living in uncertain times in 1950s communist Czechoslovakia, will be shown in the non-competition Berlinale Special section of the festival.
Holland’s award-winning film Mr. Jones, about a 1930s famine in Soviet Ukraine, had its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in 2019.
Meanwhile, an animated film by Polish director Mariusz Wilczyński will be competing this year in the new “Encounters” section, which aims to highlight daring work from innovative independent filmmakers.
Wilczyński’s Kill It and Leave This Town takes viewers back to his childhood world of the 1960s and 1970s.
The Berlin Film Festival website describes the film as a “moving, dreamlike journey into a bizarre fantasy world full of past emotions.”
