Great news comes by the way of the prestigious Berlin Film Festival. On a recent press release it was informed that The Operative – starring Martin Freeman and Diana Kruger – will have its World Premiere at Berlinale (Berlin Film Festival).
The Festival runs from February 7th until February 17th. The complete programme will be published officially on January 29 so we will know the date in which the World Premiere will take place on that day.
It’s important to remember that during those dates, Martin will be doing his play “The Dumb Waiter” for Pinter at the Pinter, in London so it’s possible that he might not be attending although no official confirmation has been released.
The still mysterious film that Martin filmed in NY during 2017 “Ode to Joy” was inspired by a story written by Portland writer Chris Higgins for the radio program and podcast “This American Life”.
The story is called “I’ve fallen in love and I can’t get up” and was published during June, 2010.
The summary is pretty much what we told you about in a previous post:
Four years ago, Matt Frerking started having attacks where he simply couldn’t move his body. That’s strange in itself, but what’s even stranger is the apparent cause of the problem, which is known as cataplexy.
You can listen to the story read by the author here.
Cargo writer and co-director Yolanda Ramke published on her instagram account this very sweet video containing behind the scenes footage of filming with kids.
