The 63rd Berlinale has started.
Apart from watching 27 films in 8 days as one of the members (together with Lucy Walker and Oren Moverman) of the jury that will decide of the winner of Berlin’s First Feature Award, Taika has set up himself one more goal for this festival.
By the end of the festival I’m going to remove Wong Kar Wai’s sunglasses.

Yesterday, was the Opening Ceremony and the host, when she was introducing different juries, wasn’t sure if she had Taika’s name right. She even asked, if it was a real name.

Yep, it sounds like from a fairy tale. Is Taika real at all?
You can watch the Gala (together with the introduction of Taika about 12 min into the video) on ZDF website. Interesting beginning of the Festival for Taika…
