COLOGNE, Germany -- Arthur Penn, director of such New Hollywood classics as Bonnie and Clyde, Alice's Restaurant and Little Big Man, will receive a Golden Bear for lifetime achievement at the 57th annual Berlin International Film Festival.
Berlin also will honor Penn with a 10-film retrospective during the festival.
"Arthur Penn's films of the 1960s and early 1970s reanimated the crises-ridden American cinema. He is a great director, who deeply influenced the American cinema d'auteur," Berlin Festival director Dieter Kosslick said.
The retrospective, which is being organized by Berlin's Deutsche Kinemathek -- Museum for Film and Television, also will include Penn's first feature, 1958 Paul Newman starrer The Left-Handed Gun, and the neo-noir 1975 picture Night Moves featuring Gene Hackman.
"The fascination of Arthur Penn's films is the way they find new expressions -- in terms of subject matter and form -- and often within genre constraints," said Rainer Rother, artistic director of the Deutsche Kinemathek.
The 84-year-old Penn will receive his Golden Bear at a gala ceremony in Berlin on Feb. »
