3:05 pm

body for swimming who agreed the test was invalid but the anti-doping agency wada disagree and claim that destruction of samples is a form of tampering the court of arbitration for sport agreed with wada benny young for the maximum 8 years the athlete fails to establish that he had a compelling just if occasion to destroy his sample collection containers it was not for the athletes to decide alone but then i don't think tests shall be invalidated shyness would mean association continue to support young in his version of events despite the guilty verdict but for now china's greatest swimmer is out for 8 years a lifespan for many athletes and his peer australia's mac horton who refused to share the podium with young at the world championships has been vindicated for the stance he took in 2019. 0 it is it's insulation but it.
3:19 pm
all right over to the berlin international film festival now belinelli where our correspondents i'm in s.f. and scott roxboro are down at the red carpet with the latest for us hi guys today you saw the last screenings of films in competition tell us a bit more about that. well the 1st one we saw this morning was a radiated cambodian documentary which is a kind of abstract collage of images of war the devastation of 4 it focuses on 2 things the nazi holocaust and also the atomic bombing of hiroshima and nagasaki in japan by the u.s. military it really shows a lot of these images some of the images that you have probably already seen from the holocaust and it's overlaid with french poetry to voices that are talking about evil a very hard film to get through i might say and it's by cambodian director richie pun who himself was born in cambodia and had to flee flee the camaro rouge and go
3:20 pm
to paris and became a filmmaker there so a very political film to start off the day with and the the other film is just as political and also just as personal it's in a rainy and film there is no evil from mohamed. and this film it's interesting because just also how it was made. has been banned from filmmaking in iran he's actually been given a one year prison sentence for suppose a crimes against the state so he had to make this film entirely in secret and he did it by making this for short films and then combine them into one into one movie and submitting all his applications to the state in secret to using other people to do it for him the film itself though is a very direct look at iran and. how it is possible to live a moral life and then more in the moral society i think it's going to have a huge impact on people when it airs tonight at the premier all right well as
3:21 pm
bonnie now is wrapping up you've had 9 days of films and stars and parties and what have been your personal highlights. you think i have time to go to parties who have been watching films like i got a party for you go tell it on the corner i'll talk about the films that you know i for me the highlight was this film down the tosh it came out of a. very controversial which we saw together hard film to get through so i don't know if i would use the word highlight but maybe the most traumatic experience later turned into something that i'm glad i had the film comes out of a very controversial project where russian director in the occurs and off ski made a replica set of a soviet era research institute in the ukraine and hired actors to stay there for up to 3 years and play the role sometimes without the cameras rolling so watching this film was somehow between a theater play a film a reality t.v. show an experience a nightmare and i think it really achieved something that i had never seen in film before so i'm going to say that's my yeah they're very very powerful but very very
3:22 pm
disturbing i mean just quickly the parties there was an amazing party for a british movie about a pakistani british rapper called a mogul moakley playing a panorama phenomenal night but that's not really that that artistic experience for in terms of the films that we're showing here i pick a film out of competition which really blew me away it's a documentary about a pig called good into the pig and the movie and it's an amazing feat for a documentary because although it's a wildlife documentary if you know voiceover no music just the sound of the pigs and this couple chickens and a couple of cows and you spend an hour and a half with these animals and it's phenomenal it's beautiful it's funny it's heartbreaking definitely my pick of the festival ok that one's out of competition there are 18 films in competition you guys have seen all of them which ones do you think will win the golden bear. well as i said
3:23 pm
on the top of was my highlight i don't think it will win the golden bear i don't know we might have a jury here that's willing to go the extra step and nominate a very controversial film but i think the film that we saw today iranian film there is no evil kind of checked all the boxes very political the courage of the filmmaker to make a few. like this and still be in iran where he can't leave that mixed with just his another film that's his classic kind of storytelling almost like a greek tragedy it was powerful i think the audience really liked it if it doesn't win the golden bear might win the audience award so i'm going to go with that one you know i think that's actually really good pick but i go for another one i think you can be the 1st time in 20 years when you see an american filmmaker when here in berlin my pick will be never rarely sometimes always by allies a hit man a very sort of small delicate movie about a young girl a teenager trying to get an abortion without a parent's permission who travels over a state borders with her cousin to try and get the nomination it's sounds like it
3:24 pm
will be politically polemic it isn't it's a very delicate story that's really quietly devastating and i think again the combination of a political subject matter a really great movie and also i think also a female director could could put this one over the top but of course we'll see tomorrow when the awards are handed out right we'll see how those picks hold up scott roxboro and i mean as if at the red carpet thank you both. now rafael's tintoretto and are some of the names associated with one of dresses best known art collections the old masters gallery but for 7 years in museums has been closed for restoration now it will reopen its doors to the public on saturday. the sistine madonna headless in a dressed in living she was part of this billboard the dresden state art collections used while their old masters picture gallery was closed for renovations . now after 7 years of reconstruction and refer bish ments it's
