By     get stories by email

The Berlin Film Festival 2014:

Landmark US and Chinese cinematic collaboration of what is being characterized as a dark, dingy and disturbing, market economy driven Chinese Noir, in the film 'Black Coal, Thin Ice.' And what it may have to do with privatization, coal factories, the metaphorical bleakness of that industry for workers; Hitchcock, Bogart, Glenn Ford and the Maltese Falcon; and a complicated modern world characterized by wrestling with the demons inside human beings. A conversation with the producer, Daniel Victor.

Note: Black Coal, Thin Ice has just won the Golden Bear, the top prize at the Berlin Film Festival.
