By SHIRA TEGERUnmistaken Child, a documentary by Israeli director Nati Baratz, is going to compete at the Berlin Film Festival in the "Panorama" section. The inclusion in the festival was announced on Wednesday, two months after Berlin's director saw the film at the Toronto Film Festival.
Unmistaken Child (Hagilgul, in Hebrew) had its Israeli premiere at the Haifa Film Festival, where it won the prize for best documentary.
