"You simply cannot anticipate what you will find on the road," says Walter Salles in his 'Notes for a Theory of the Road Movie.' This panel brings together two filmmakers whose literally "moving" films can exemplify the best of what cinema can offer. Salles (ON THE ROAD), widely known for sending his characters off to discover their inner selves on long and winding trips, meets up with German director Sebastian Schipper. Schipper’s film VICTORIA is an exceptional entry this year in the official Berlinale Competition, as the movie sticks hard on the heels of its young protagonists and their odyssey through nocturnal Berlin, masterfully choreographed in one more than two-hour long continuous shot.
