January is over and this 2013 speeds up with the Berlinale and the European Film Market. After the World Premiere of Mustafa's Sweet Dreams in the last year, Taskovski Films is glad of screening another of our award winning documentaries in this Berlinale 2013.

The Venice Syndrome by Andreas Pichler will take part in the German Cinema section within the Official Programme of the Berlinale. Taskovski Films welcomes all festival and market attendants on the Wednesday 13th February at 13:30 PM in cinemaxX 1.

The documentary shows what remains of Venetian life: a subculture of tourist service industries; a port for monstrous cruisers which is waiting to be expanded; Venetians who are moving to the mainland as there are no longer affordable apartments to be found; an aged noblewoman who treats the municipal council with scorn; a realtor who is considering abandoning the sinking ship.
