Switching Genres: The Power of Hybrid Film

with Corneliu Porumboiu, Warwick Thornton

There has been a recent surge of films that explore a hybrid approach to narrative through the use of documentary techniques, and a conscious blending of the constructed and the observational. Sophie Hyde (52 Tuesdays), Warwick Thornton (The Darkside, Samson & Delilah) and Corneliu Porumboiu (The Second Game, Police Adjective), who are both premiering their new films in the Berlinale, will discuss their formal and stylistic choices in making their latest films, and the benefits to using both documentary and narrative strategies. In cooperation with Berlinale Forum and Berlinale Generation.
