Screening and Discussion
The story that US-based Japanese director Atsushi Funahashi will
tell today started at the Berlinale Talent Campus in 2004. As a
participant of the Talent Project Market he pitched his script to
Takeshi Kitano's production company. The result of this successful
deal runs in this year's Forum section and is titled BIG RIVER,
a roadmovie about the borderless realms of friendship. Showing some
sequences from BIG RIVER, Atsushi Funahashi, interviewed by Christoph
Terhechte, will talk about the origin of his Japanese-US-Pakistani
co-production and how he found his producer Mohammed Naqvi at the
Big River’s European Premiere @ Berlin Film Festival.
