Philipp Lachenmann: DELPHI Rationale



19.05.2014, Berlin | On May 18, 2014, the Alfred Kerr Acting Prize was presented for the twentieth time as part of the Berliner Theatertreffen in recognition of the outstanding achievement of an emerging young actor in one of the productions selected for the theater meeting. To mark the award’s 20th anniversary, the young filmmaker Hanna Slak – who, together with Guillaume Cailleau (director) and Michel Balagué (camera), won the Silver Bear Jury Prize (Short Film) at this year’s Berlinale – has produced a short video tribute to the Alfred Kerr Acting Prize which will premiere at the award ceremony and can subsequently be viewed on the website of the Alfred Kerr Foundation, thanks to support from the Ernst Schering Foundation.
