The World in Your Hands

What do you have in your hands right now? What have your hands created today?

In 2022 Berlinale Talents is putting work front and centre, focusing on the 'hands-on' experience of filmmaking with our theme Labours of Cinema. Despite the fundamentally digital nature of this year's event, we are exploring the physicality that goes into the creation of films, food and almost everything else we do.

With that in mind, we have asked our 200 Talents to join us in an exploration of handiwork, of crafting, creating, cooking ... With the video essay Hands of Bresson by our beloved former talk guest kogonada as a source of inspiration, we have asked them to share a daily image of the most basic yet essential tools of labour we all have at our disposable - our hands.
