Andreas Dresen

Born in 1963, the German author and director Andreas Dresen is known for his unscripted, improvised shootings with a well-rehearsed crew and amateur actors. This procedure provides his films with an extremely realistic, semi-documentary character. His work WOLKE 9, a film about love and sexuality in old age, celebrated its world premiere in the series ‘Un Certain Regard’ at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008.

WOLKE 9 was screened as an exclusive Sunday Matinee. Andreas Dresen and producer Peter Rommel were available after the matinee to hold an open ZFF Masters for our young filmmakers, the Zurich Film Festival’s competition directors and Zurich’s general public.
