At Home: David Fischer

This is David Fischer in his northern Mitte flat. David is a photographer focusing on portraiture, having moved to Berlin in the early 2000s after studying in New York and working as an assistant under Bruce Weber. He has a thing for Dogme 95, wilted flowers, and Tazio Secchiaroli, evidence of which can be seen all around his living room. The photo above him is of the band Low, and was taken by David. The rest of his portfolio is up online on his homepage.

Interview: Christoph Terhechte

This week Berlin’s biggest film festival Berlinale is taking over the cinemas of the town screening more than 400 films in seven sections. To get a grip on the huge program we met the director of Forum, the section focussing on international young cinema, and talked to him about Berlin influencing the festival now and then, the selection process (2000 submissions each year!) and what films he’s interested in this year (e.g.: Mumblecore). Ticket sales start today, be sure to be quick, it sells out pretty fast.
