The Berlin International Film Festival mourns the passing of actor Bruno Ganz. He was a long-standing companion of the festival, as well as a frequent guest with numerous films. Bruno Ganz made international film history as one of the greatest and most versatile actors, not least with his unforgettable role as an angel in Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders.
„We are saddened by the loss of Bruno Ganz, who inspired generations of film fans. Now he is truly in the heavens above Berlin,“ says festival director Dieter Kosslick.
