Berlin: Festival Topper Dieter Kosslick Oversees a More Politically Charged Event This Year

3 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Taking place two months after a terrorist attack in Berlin and at the dawn of a new political era for the U.S, this year’s Berlin Film Festival could turn out to be one of the most politically charged in years. The failure of capitalism is one prominent motif. Berlinale director Dieter Kosslick discusses social and political themes, the challenges of ensuring maximum security and the sale of Berlin’s Potsdamer Platz, home to the Berlinale. He also offers his thoughts on President Trump and Meryl Streep.

How would you describe the main themes running through this year’s films? The subject of immigration and refugees seem to be integral to Etienne Comar’s opening film “Django” and Aki Kaurismaki’s “The Other Side of Hope.”

It’s very interesting — many filmmakers are focusing on history and are trying to explain why things are the way they are today from a historical perspective. »
