Breaking onto the scene with a critically acclaimed, award-winning, and festival-hopping film is every filmmaker's dream, but what happens after you've made it big? That's when the real challenges start. Berlinale Talents alumni Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox) and Anthony Chen (Ilo Ilo) join German filmmaker Jan-Ole Gerster (Oh Boy) to discuss life after success. Moderated by producer Lorna Tee, they‘ll discuss what it takes to get through their initial achievements and persevere toward their next project, the difficulties of expectations, writers block, and the toll that international-hopscotching can take on one's life as they knew it.
