Nuri Bilge Ceylan: "I watch all kinds of films, but as a viewer I love films for children most"

user
You chose to go with your team to some villages near Sofia. Did you find any interesting places? We toured several villages across the gorge of the Iskar River. I think the most interesting place we found was an old, completely deserted railway station. There were no people and the small building was full of remnants of past life. Among the waste, bird nests and broken things, I found a very old writing desk. It was astonishing that on the inner side of one of its doors were post...

FEST21 (Suzanne Lynch): You said at the press conference, "(Metropia) is about those years when the world went insane, it's about the past. And when you are afraid, you do irrational things."

Tribeca Film Festival - Here Come the Neighborhoods

Both are Manhattan cinema extravaganzas — whose overlaps end there. Populist Tribeca plays teriyaki to artsy NYFF's sashimi.    Nearly four decades the Lincoln Center event's junior, Tribeca was founded in 2002 by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff as a goad to downtown development in th...

The 60th Berlinale--Retrospektively Speaking

by Richard Traubner The Retrospektive at the Berlinale usually excites all types of film historians, curators, museum personnel, and other interested parties--especially when it's a German subject. This year, a restored version of Fritz Lang's 1927 Metropolis trumped the Retrospektive itself, which was a look-back at significant and sometimes controversial films shown at the film festival since it began in 1951--in far warmer June weather.     Many of these films...
