An Evening with Arthur Cohn & Screening Central do Brasil

by Walter Salles Special Screenings

Basel-born Arthur Cohn is a legend in his own lifetime. With six Oscars, he is one of the world’s most renowned film producers, and the recipient of various honorary doctorates, other illustrious titles and awards from every important film festival. Arthur Cohn is a producer through and through, a steadfast perfectionist. Reviewing Cohn’s œuvre to date – 18 documentaries and feature films – it becomes clear that his appeal for mild and poetic, humane-orientated film is not just lip-service. His productions, for which he often uses young and hitherto unknown talent, are far beyond the mainstream. This applies as much to IL GIARDINO DEI FINZI-CONTINI as it does to ONE DAY IN SEPTEMBER, CENTRAL STATION and LES CHORISTES, to name but just a few.

An event presented by Schweizer Illustrierte in collaboration with Zurich Film Festival.
