Tribute to Andreas Dresen
Jugoslovenska kinoteka, Uzun Mirkova 1 (29.11. – 2.12.2016.)
This year, the Auteur Film Festival will be preparing an homage to Andreas Dresen, one of the most unique modern European directors. Dresen`s unique style is based on improvisation, which results in exceptional acting performances and an impression of realism that borders on documentarism. The selection of films we have chosen will introduce you to the world of Andreas Dresen, from his debut film to his most famous works, that have won awards at the Cannes and Berlin film festivals.
