Béla Tarr was born in Pécs, Hungary in 1955. He graduated from the Hungarian Academy of Theatre and Film in Budapest in 1981. He has been a member of the European Film Academy since 1996 and is one of the world's most original and acclaimed contemporary filmmakers. In a body of work concerned with explorations of the human condition, he has created an uncompromising, innovative and utterly engrossing cinematic world.
Julien Temple was born in London in 1953. He grew up with little interest in film until, while still a student at Cambridge University, he discovered the French anarchist and director, Jean Vigo, who would become Temple's lifelong hero. He encountered another influential manifestation of the anarchist spirit in the Sex Pistols, who were the subject of many of his short films and documentaries, including 'The Filth and the Fury' (2000).
Born in Buenos Aires, acclaimed Argentine filmmaker Pablo Trapero initially attracted acclaim with his riveting, Neorealist-inspired feature debut 'Crane World' (1999). His emergence coincided with the rise of the ‘Argentinian New Wave’ alongside Lucretia Martel ('The Holy Girl', 'The Headless Woman') and Lisandro Alonso ('Liverpool', 'Jauja'). His status as a filmmaker of world-renowned cinema was cemented with ‘Lion’s Den’ (2008), which was nominated for a Palme d’Or. He followed it with ’Carancho’ (2010) and ‘White Elephant’ (2012), ambitious projects that balance the attraction of genre – most notably the thriller – with powerful social criticism. ‘The Clan’, which won the Silver Lion for Best Director at Venice 2015, went onto break Box Office records on its opening weekend in Argentina.
Born in 1956 in Copenhagen, Denmark, Lars von Trier is considered to be the most provocative and visually unique Danish directors since the great Carl Theodor Dreyer. Sexually explicit imagery, genre and tonal contrasts, and handheld camerawork are his wildly unpredictable trademarks. His films, including 'The Idiots' (1998), 'Dancer in the Dark' (2000), and 'Antichrist' (2009) are not for the faint-hearted.
John Turturro, born in 1957, is an Italian-American actor and director, who has frequently collaborated with the Coen brothers and Spike Lee. He is best known for his roles in 'Barton Fink' (1991), 'The Big Lebowski' (1998) and 'O Brother Where Art Thou?' (2000). Turturro's fifth directorial film was 'Fading Gigolo' (2014), in which he also acts opposite Woody Allen.
