How to Read a Film? Film Critics Meeting Filmmakers

with Dietrich Brüggemann, Edwin, Chris Fujiwara, Diego Lerer, Stephanie Zacharek

“I have a strong need in my work to be criticized and to know where I was wrong or right, but with evidence.” (Jean-Luc Godard) Do filmmakers need criticism? Are film critics writing to filmmakers? And are filmmakers listening? Critics Diego Lerer and Chris Fujiwara will discuss with filmmaker and Berlinale Talents alumnus Edwin (Postcards From the Zoo, Berlinale Competition 2012) about the influence criticism has on filmmakers' work and how it might change their own thinking about their films.
