Watch The First Trailer For Sundance Film ‘This Is Not Berlin’

Published On January 22, 2019 » 385 Views» By Z-rowe »

This Is Not Berlin‘ is set to have its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this month. It will be writer/director Hari Sama’s fifth feature and is a coming-of-age drama set in 1986 Mexico City.

The movie, which is reportedly semi-autobiographical, features two newcomers Xabiani Ponce de León and José Antonio Toledano, as well as ‘Roma‘ co-star Marina de Tavira.

“In the trailer, we see the drug and art-fueled world of political and socio-economic protest revolving around the 1986 World Cup which consumes the film’s two young protagonists. Tasked with mending a broken synthesizer, Carlos receives an invitation to the Aztec, a downtown ‘everything bar’ where his best friend Gera’s sister is playing a gig with her electric-punk band.

Identity can be a rough subject for a teenager under the best of circumstances, but confronted by a rapidly changing world, drugs, disease, art and politics, we see Carlos and Gera lost in a haze. Their discovery and affirmation of something like their first true selves forms the story.”

This film doesn’t have a release date in the U.S., but that will likely change soon after its premiere at Sundance.
