Sound Studio Workshop II

Peter Albrechtsen, Heikki Kossi
In cooperation with the Studio for Electroacoustic Music at the Akademie der Künste.

A crystal vase crashes, a piano plays madly on the ground floor, a child begins to wail. Sounds are often stories in their own right. Knowing this, the Sound Studio focuses on the development of sound and music in both documentaries and fiction films, bringing sound designers and composers together with the aim of creating unique forms of sonic storytelling. The participants benefit from a two-day workshop, led by mentors with lifetime experiences in their crafts and the spirit to improvise and try the unknown. By listening to and working with files brought in by the Talents from their home towns, different acoustic story worlds shall meet, collide, connect, and thereby influence and be influenced by the unique workshop space: Berlinale Talents proudly cooperates again with the Studio for Electroacoustic Music at the Akademie der Künste, a time machine into the living history of sound and a laboratory for performative and digital art.

Simon Weisse
moderated by Andrew Amondson

Prop and model maker Simon Weisse steps out of his Berlin-based workshop and onto the Berlinale Talents stage to share the joys and errors that surround his niche craft. Simon has built up a distinguished career working alongside production designers and detail-obsessed directors, creating model luxury hotels for Wes Anderson and strange objects for the Wachowski sisters. In a digital age dominated by special effects and a let’s fix- it-in-post mentality, Simon’s models stand out even against the green screens on a set. Providing examples from the brainstorming phase to the actual drawing and sawing in the workshop, Simon lays bare his entire creative process and keeps an eye out for any devils lurking.

Festival Film Screening: Buoyancy

Rodd Rathjen, Australien, 2019, 93 min.

15-year-old Chakra leads an exhausting life. He and his family work in the rice fields of Cambodia. When a friend tells Chakra about the possibility of earning money in a factory, the boy sets off alone. But he soon falls into the clutches of human traffickers and is sold into slave labour. The captain’s regime is both cruel and arbitrary on the Thai fishing boat he is forced to work on. Violence, torture and even murder quickly become the order of the day and Chakra realises that his only hope is to get rid of his persecutors. Talents alumnus Rodd Rathjen’s first feature film is a brutal yet realistic depiction of the situation for Cambodian forced labourers. His film is a passion- ate testimony against social injustice and a touching coming-of-age story about a boy whose humanity is severely tested.

Reinventing Porn: Erika’s Ethics

Erika Lust
moderated by Maike Mia Höhne
In cooperation with Berlinale Shorts.



How and why did Erika pick up a camera? Sex-positive director Erika Lust (XConfessions) analyses the androcentric space of porn and mass media and its representation of sex, sexuality and women built by the male gaze and its ideals. For her, change occurs in the production process, meaning that what happens in front of the camera has everything to do with the people behind it. In the company of Berlinale Shorts Curator Maike Mia Höhne, she discusses how this principle affects everything from the storyline, to the way pleasure, gender roles and agency are represented and how collaborators work on set. Yet Erika’s production ethics are by no means restricted to the domain of porn and she sets out to ask questions about the place of social responsibility in the wider medium of filmmaking.

Berlinale Homage: THE LOOK - Charlotte Rampling

Charlotte Rampling
moderated by Peter Cowie
In cooperation with Deutsche Kinemathek Museum für Film und Fernsehen.



Charlotte Rampling’s body of work amounts to more than 100 film and television productions, for which she is the recipient of this year’s Honorary Golden Bear at the Berlinale. Her international breakthrough came with Il portiere di notte in 1974. A career of highpoints followed: La caduta degli dei, Star- dust Memories and Swimming Pool, the latter leading to her being awarded Best Actress at the European Film Awards. Charlotte Rampling has often chosen to embody multifaceted and unconventional figures, which, in her own words, she brings to the screen with an absolute “honesty of feeling.” For the pleasure of the audience attending, film historian Peter Cowie retraces the milestones of an illustrious career with the actress who lived it.

Steps, Shots and Silence: Sound and Foley in Docs

This journey into the fabulous world of sound comes with a twist: rather than venture into the rabbit-hole of fiction, sound designer Peter Albrechtsen and foley artist Heikki Kossi draw us into the fabricated soundscapes of documentary films, revealing the intricacies of adding realism to reality. Equipped with a collection of recorded sounds and an array of props brought down from the Finnish fjords, Peter and Heikki show the audience how they create noises that slip into the folds of documentaries unnoticed and therefore into our sense of reality. But what mistakes occur most frequently in this game of acoustic make-believe?
