In this episode, we take a closer look at some of the different stations involved in the making of a movie. Cinematographers, screenwriters, and production designers pitch in as we travel through the Berlinale Talents archive to understand what it takes to carry a director’s vision to the big screen. The pros we talked to – visionaries like Josephine Decker, Agnès Godard or Uli Hanisch – are clear on one aspect of filmmaking: the virtue of collaboration.
