Short on Answers: Calling Film into Question

Long before their internationally lauded features, directors Jennifer Reeder (Knives and Skin) and Ilker Çatak (currently Academy Award nominated with The Teacher’s Lounge) cut their teeth on several shorts; and together with Xabier Erkizia, the sound designer behind such festival gems as Lois Patiño’s Samsara, they sit on the jury of Berlinale Shorts. In this lively encounter with the audience, which is not at all a classical talk, the three will engage in a question-and-answer game that will have them draw from their experiences working on films of all lengths, and explore common ways to communicate with images, gestures, soundscapes, and even telepathy and just silence. For those looking for unexpected answers on the art of filmmaking, its magic as well as its frustrations, this hands-on closing panel of the Berlinale Talents week on 'Language' is definitely an event out of question.
