A new tradition of sharing a “coup de champagne” on Closing Night of the Berlinale seems to be in the making with Ben and Stephanie Gibson and us. Last year we found ourselves together at the Hyatt for pre-Closing Night Drinks; this year we shared a coup at the Berlinale Palast before the crowd arrived.

The opening night of the Berlinale was all about politics, from the red carpet, where Green Party politician and Bundestag vice president Claudia Roth sported a black dress adorned with the word “Unpresidented” in large letters – an apparent dig at U.S. President Donald Trump’s spelling aptitude and/or his perceived behavior as commander-in-chief – to officials and speakers taking the stage to talk about free speech, free art and resistance to oppression.
At Thursday’s ceremony in the Berlinale Palast, the new U.S. administration even took some hits from the evening’s host, German comedian and actress Anke Engelke. She had a question for international guests: “Are you here for the festival? Or is someone keeping you from going back to your home country?” That got a big laugh.
Engelke drew loud laughs as she greeted the jury, noting that last year Meryl Streep served as jury president. »

While no one at the Berlin Film Festival’s opening day jury press conference mentioned U.S. President Donald Trump’s name, his shadow loomed large over the crowded room as jury members discussed wide-ranging topics that spanned film, politics, culture, economics and the role of technology.
“For me as an American, it’s incredible to be at such an international film festival at this point in time,” said jury member Maggie Gyllenhaal. “I want people around the world to know that there are many, many people in my country that are ready to resist.”
Mexico’s Diego Luna said he was “always looking at ways too tear down walls” when asked about his feelings on Trump’s proposed U.S. border fortification. “The only positive thing about this is the reaction that it has caused — I want to be part of that, to reject all the nonsense and hatred. »
