DW's Charlotte Chelsom-Pill and David Levitz are on the red carpet for the opening of this year's Berlinale. They join Brent Goff on The Day to talk about the movies vying for the Golden Bear.
The French movie actress has been awarded by the Berlinale twice before, including a best actress prize. The festival's director stressed her "strong connection" to the event.
Lone Scherfig's story of homelessness and uncertainty in contemporary America is surprisingly optimistic. Kicking off the Berlinale with a tale of hope, the work offers humor to compensate for its lack of credibility.
Nadav Lapid's quasi-autobiographical quest for identity on the silver screen takes the Golden Bear at the Berlinale 2019. Meanwhile, "So Long, My Son" by Chinese director Wang Xiaoshuai won two Silver Bear awards.
Cineastes are converging on the German capital for the latest edition of the Berlin International Film Festival, which opens February 7. The last Berlinale headed by Dieter Kosslick may well be dominated by women.
