Berlinale jury president Darren Aronofsky (PI, BLACK SWAN, NOAH) and jury member and winner of a Golden Bear Claudia Llosa (MADEINUSA, LA TETA ASUSTADA, ALOFT) will take the stage to kick off the multi-dimensional discovery trip coming up this week at Berlinale Talents, as well as discuss how they have sculpted space in their own highly acclaimed films.
