Fantastic Wes Anderson

Back
Wes Anderson’s stop-motion animation Isle of Dogs will do the opening of Berlin Film Festival on the15th of February. It is Anderson’s return to Berlin, where he was awarded the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize in 2012, for Grand Budapest Hotel.

LEFFEST has already organized a full retrospective of the American director, and he was a special guest in 2014, when he gave two masterclasses around two films he himself had chosen. One of them was the classic The Gold of Naples, by Vittorio De Sica (Anderson saw the film in a big screen in a wonderful 35mm print for the first time in the festival). After the screening, Wes Anderson talked about the film (and also about his own work) with Paulo Branco, director of LEFFEST, and the audience in a sold out theatre, full of young spectators. You can watch here that unforgettable masterclass by one of the greatest American director of our times.
