For over twenty years photographer Birgit Kleber has been making portraits of German and international film stars at the Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale): Monica Bellucci and Chloë Sevigny, Willem Dafoe and shooting star Franz Rogowski, director Wim Wenders and producer Artur Brauner, to name just a few. They’re always in the same posture, always in the same setting – and she’s always searching for that special moment. “I want the proverbial five minutes.” Enough time for surprisingly personal things to surface: people’s life stories, feelings and all their vulnerabilities.
