12.02.2017 - Ana Lily Amirpour, Christoph Gröner
Ana Lily Amirpour’s unforgettably atmospheric feature debut, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, tagged "the first Iranian vampire western,” woos genre-lovers with its cool pastiche of pop-culture references and deliciously romantic mood swings. Although wary of categorizations, Amirpour sees herself as an inventor – not motivated by money but rather by passion – perhaps a bit mad and sometimes also a loner. Taking Bruce Lee’s life philosophies as a launch pad, the Berlinale Talents alumna describes how her ideas flow from a dynamic process of being inspired. Showing clips from her own films and projects and drawing references to other pop-culture inspirations, Amirpour invites the audience to witness a fluid approach to cradling ideas.
