Following 10 days of intensive film-viewing pleasure, the Zurich Film Festival finally draws to a close. The US box office hit THE HELP is billed as the festival’s Closing Film. Emma Stone, Viola Davies, Octavia Spencer and the film’s director Tate Taylor are expected to adorn the Green Carpet (corso 1, 19:45). But before the 2011 festival ends for good under this star-studded constellation, there are still a number of cinematographic gems to see. Director Andreas Dresen is on hand to present his drama HALT AUF FREIER STRECKE (Le Paris, 17:00). The US documentary BETTER THIS WORLD (corso 4, 16:45), which casts a critical eye on post 9/11 justice, also receives a screening. And finally, the Filmpodium presents three masterpieces by our guests of honour: Iñárritu’s AMORES PERROS (15.00), Haggis’ CRASH (18.15) and Sean Penn’s MILK (20.45). Enjoy our last festival day!
