Brazil's Globo will be present at the Berlinale 2024 with its main releases Globoplay Originals such as "The End," "The Brazilian Mafia," and '"The Others," including other titles. The event will also feature an exhibition of "Living on A Razor's Edge" on the 20th, at 2 pm, at CinemaxX 1.

Created and written by Fernanda Torres, with artistic direction by Andrucha Waddington ("Under Pressure") and direction by Daniela Thomas, "The End" follows a group of friends and their joys, nonsenses, and frustrations over four decades. 'The Others', by Lucas Paraizo ('"Under Pressure"), with artistic direction by Luisa Lima ("Where My Heart Is"), discusses intolerance and the difficulty of having a dialogue in today's society.

On the other hand, the documentary series "The Brazilian Mafia" delves into the underworld of Jogo do Bicho in Rio de Janeiro. With an operation that takes place along the lines of a mafia, Jogo do Bicho involves stories of influential families with internal fights for power, fraud, betrayal, revenge, and murders. With artistic supervision by Pedro Bial ("Xuxa, A Life On TV"), "The Brazilian Mafia" is produced by Conversa.doc, the documentary core of "Conversa com Bial." The artistic direction is Monica Almeida's, and the directors are Fellipe Awi, Ricardo Calil, and Gian Carlo Bellotti. Executive production is by Erick Brêtas and Mariano Boni.

Globo Filmes will also be present at the event with the film "Cidade; Campo" by Juliana Rojas, which will be presented at Berlinale Encounters, a selection aimed at promoting bold works by independent and innovative filmmakers. The films featured in this category will compete for Best Film, Direction, and Special Jury Prize awards. Starring Fernanda Vianna, Mirella Façanha, and Bruna Linzmeyer, the story is about migration between the city and the countryside based on the stories of the characters of Joana and Flávia. It's produced by Dezenove Som e Imagens and co-produced by Globo Filmes, Canal Brasil, Telecine, Spcine, Quanta, O2 Pós, Vitrine Filmes, Sutor Kolonko (Germany) and Good Fortune Films (France).
