More Than Words: Subtitling and Live Voice-Over

Andrea Kirchhartz, Rebekah Smith, Ian Burley, Marie Dumora, Beatrice von Moreau
moderated by Natascha Noack
In cooperation with Berlinale Panorama and Berlinale Generation.

When film dialogue is professionally translated through subtitling, the viewer forgets the process of reading. As a form of literary translation, subtitling is a highly skilled technical craft and at the same time an art form. How is cultural specificity and semantic nuance transported through subtitles, and what are the limitations therein? What alternatives to classic subtitles exist? Does live voice-over present other possibilities, as it is practiced e.g. in the Berlinale's Generation section? These and further questions are raised by experts taking Marie Dumora’s Belinda (Panorama) as a practical case study and demonstrating a live voice-over.


13:30 - 14:30

Meet the Experts: Subtitling

Andrea Kirchhartz, Rebekah Smith, Ian Burley
Directly following "More Than Words: Subtitling and Live Voice Over," subtitle translators Rebekah, Andrea and Ian meet with Talents to clarify points made in the session and help solve any individual subtitling questions.

Studio Tables

The Berlinale Talents Studios are both intensive think tanks and laboratories for Talents of specific fields of work to explore, debate and test the most pressing questions and advances of their discipline. On the final day of the Talents week, the participants of each Studio convene to present to their colleagues a specific topic that was a focus of particular interest over the week. In a mobile format set around tables, editors, cinematographers, production designers, sound designers, composers, distributors and sales agents answer your questions and lay bare their practical knowledge. This networking event rounds off the Talents week and brings into focus the bigger picture of a truly multidisciplinary industry.

Shock of the Real: History As Provocation

Raoul Peck
moderated by Ben Gibson
In cooperation with Berlinale Panorama, Berlinale Special and dffb.

Acclaimed Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck has created a body of work in documentary and fiction distinguished by its critical engagement and intellectual courage. Taking on such specters of postcolonial injustice as underdevelopment, racism and communal violence, Peck’s films illuminate the personal stories and contradictory experiences of those individuals often treated by history and cinema as faceless, invisible, silent. This year's Berlinale features two new Peck films: the fictional The Young Karl Marx in Berlinale Special and I Am Not Your Negro, a documentary based on an unfinished manuscript by James Baldwin in Panorama. In the 50th year of the dffb, Peck, a graduate of the Berlin film school, reflects on his cinematic journey.


17:00 - 18:30

Your Engagement Has Consequences

Olafur Eliasson
moderated by Florian Weghorn

The experiential works of Icelandic visual artist and International Jury member Olafur Eliasson play with light, scale, architecture and the mechanics of perception. By making space tangible, and configuring the viewer’s body within it, Eliasson’s installations and interventions confuse the traditional roles of author and receiver. Embracing a creative process not unlike the invention of film worlds, the artist collectively works with over 90 collaborators in his Berlin studio, which he refers to as a laboratory. Eliasson lays bare his approach to birthing and testing his projects, as well as how he challenges himself and his audience to take personal responsibility for the consequences of art.


22:00 - 23:59
