Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize to WHEEL OF FORTUNE AND FANTASY

5 March 2021

We're beyond happy with the news: WHEEL OF FORTUNE AND FANTASY is the winner of the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize at Berlinale 2021! Congratulations to Ryusuke Hamaguchi and his team! We're so proud to be working on this title.

The jury statement: "In the place where dialogues and words usually end, the dialogues of this film only begin. That’s when they go deeper, so deep that, amazed and troubled, we ask ourselves: How much deeper can it go? The words of Hamaguchi are substance, music, material. At first it looks almost minor: a man and a woman, sometimes two women, stand in a room with white walls. Then the scene moves forward, and as it advances you feel that the whole universe, including yourself, is standing there with them inside this simple room."
