Berlinale goes BANANAS!*

BANANAS!* continue its journey around the world. Because of the conflict with Dole Food Company, the Berlinale International Film Festival has made an exception from their ordinary premiere rules and shows the film in the section for food politics, “Culinary Cinema”.

"The concept for the series has proven successful. We show films that whet our audience appetites and then we cook for them. Though we also show films that ruin their appetites, for instance, films that open their eyes to the catastrophic global food situation”, says festival director Dieter Kosslick.

This year, Berlinale International Film Festival celebrates its 60 year anniversary and takes place in Berlin, February 11-21.

Monday, 15. February, at 10:00 p.m. (admission 09:45 p.m.)

Tuesday, 16. February, at 05:00 p.m.
