April 2nd, 2017.
I'm presently on holiday in Germany, and though I was aware that Berlin would be hosting a premiere this Tuesday, a fortuitous Recon to the Sony Centre on Saturday revealed that there was also set to be a premiere for the Smurfs : The Lost Village animated feature.
Obviously, being animated, the voice cast would be German; but equally obviously, I had my equipment handy, and since more or less everything is closed in Berlin on a Sunday, I made my way down there.
Here's how it went down:
So... that was rather great. Not only did I get to have a surprise premiere in Berlin, but I got to photograph quite a lot of actors I've actually seen in German-language movies I've watched.
And it's a first time for me : photographing a non-English speaking premiere in a non-English speaking country. I guess that means it gets added to the "Archive of Premieres", which also includes two Korean language, one Japanese, and one Chinese film (with premieres in London).
Until next time! (Hopefully Tuesday!)
