Keep Exploring: Spaces of Discovery

Nanouk Leopold, Joanna Hogg
moderated by Jesse Cumming
Joanna Hogg BAFTA

Remote islands, an Italian villa, an old farmstead behind a dike – European auteurs Joanna Hogg and Nanouk Leopold are lovers of cinematic space. The saturation of houses and neighbouring territories with subjectivity is a quality common to these craftswomen and artists. This event draws out the multiple dimensions of their films, as they take each other and the audience on a cinematic expedition through the habitats created for the screen. Thanks to sequences from their work, Joanna and Nanouk also exchange on topics such as the technicalities of shooting “on location” and the tender or conflicted relationships their characters develop with spaces, which, more often than not, are more than mere backdrops.


14:00 - 16:00

Screening Shorts: Time Is No Mistake

Manuel Abramovich, Zara Dwinger, Pham Ngoc Lan, Ariane Louis-Seize, Luca Tóth

Studio Circles

moderated by Pola Hahn
The Berlinale Talents Studios are laboratories for Talents of specific disciplines to explore, debate and test the most pressing questions and advances of their crafts. On the final day of the Talents week, the participants of each Studio convene to present key issues that were a focus of particular interest over the week to their colleagues. In a mobile format, actors, editors, cinematographers, production designers, sound designers, composers, dis­tri­butors and sales agents answer your ques­tions and share their practical knowledge. This networking event definitely brings the bigger picture of a truly multidisciplinary art form into focus.

In the Aftermath: Saviano's Writings

Roberto Saviano
moderated by Dorothee Wenner

Roberto Saviano has written under various authorial guises, moving from essayist, to novelist and screenwriter when deemed fit. Undaunted by threats made on his life after the publication of Gomorrah, his initial investigation into the Italian mafia, he fixatedly returns to the scene of organised crime in modern day Italy in his writings. This is also the case with La Paranza dei bambini (Competition), his adopted novel now premiering on the screen of the Berlinale. Yet these writings, admittedly created with vengeance and rigour, trigger severe consequences for the author. The question then becomes one of considering the potency of art when it ventures into spaces where lawlessness reigns and returns with the ugliest aspects of human nature for us to view.


17:00 - 18:30

Curious Choices: The End of Mistakes

Nadav Lapid
moderated by Vincenzo Bugno

There’s hardly a better way to conclude the Talents week than in the presence of lauded writer-director Nadav Lapid, who joins us to reflect upon the fundamental questions that recur in his work. Nadav, invited with his new film Synonymes to the Berlinale Competition, will discuss his taste for characters animated by apparent contradictions which are far from unrelated to the complexity and dichotomies of modern-day Israel. The notion of a moral highground loses its currency in his fictions and makes talking simply of ‘mistakes’ somewhat unsatisfactory. Showing excerpts from his latest and semi-autobiographical film, he discusses how the existence of contradictions in life is a driving force for his stories which, to a certain degree, cannot be read ‘wrongly.’ Don’t miss this final session as we push the notion of ‘mistakes’ to its limits.


17:00 - 18:30

Talents Footprints

Keith Nurse
moderated by Christine Tröstrum
In cooperation with the German Federal Foreign Office and the German Commission for UNESCO.

To help collect thoughts, we are delighted to be joined by Dr. Keith Nurse from the University of the West Indies to talk about “Fair Trade for Culture” and how to achieve more sustainability within the cultural sector. In case you haven’t already done so, find out more about Talents Footprints (pp.12-13).
