Berlinale 2004: The Talent Press


The Talent Press had for the first time been organized at the Berlin International Film Festival, as part of the "Talent Campus" initiative. Six young critics had been invited to attend the festival, to make acquaintance with recent world cinema, and to meet experienced colleagues. They wrote on their impressions, guided by Derek Malcolm, Aruna Vasudev and Chris Fujiwara. Five young film journalists were writing on daily events - selected texts appearing here and on the Talent Campus website.

Saturday, February 7: "Akame 48 Waterfalls", "Night of the Living Dead", "The Sign of Chaos", "Witnesses"

Sunday, February 8: "The Wild Angels", "Beautiful Country", "Anatomy of Hell", "Oncle Yanco", "David Holzman's Diary", Cachorro
