13.02.2014 - Sophie Hyde, Corneliu Porumboiu, Warwick Thornton, moderated by Jean-Pierre Rehm
There has been a recent surge of films that explore a hybrid approach to narrative through the use of documentary techniques, and a conscious blending of the constructed and the observational. Sophie Hyde (52 Tuesdays), Warwick Thornton (The Darkside, Samson and Delilah) and Corneliu Porumboiu (The Second Game, Police Adjective), who are premiering their new films in the Berlinale, will discuss their formal and stylistic choices in making their latest films, and the benefits to using both documentary and narrative strategies.
