Great Work: Meet the Berlinale Winners

Carla Simón, moderated by Carlo Chatrian

Time to call it a day, in style. Hosted by our Berlinale's very own Artistic Director Carlo Chatrian, this talk rounds off the Talents week by bringing it within the broader lights of the film festival. With the winners now revealed, we have the wonderful opportunity to hear from happy filmmakers who have been awarded in the festival.
Fresh from her Golden Bear win for Best Film for "Alcarràs", Talents alum Carla Simón will return to Berlinale Talents to join Carlo Chatrian in discussion about the labour behind her film, and its portrayal of complex family relations.
