Dialogue: Paul Schrader
The Berlin festival jury president on 'The Walker,' sexual politics and European financing.
As president of the International Jury, writer/director Paul Schrader won't just be watching other filmmakers' work at the Berlin International Film Festival. He'll also be debutting his latest feature "The Walker," a portrait of an escort who squires about society ladies that promises to offer another look at the type of man Schrader indelibly captured in "American Gigolo." And, at the same time, he hopes to squeeze his some pre-production meetings for his next film, "Adam Resurrected," set in an asylum for Holocaust survivors, which he's about to begin filming. Schrader spoke with The Hollywood Reporter film editor Gregg Kilday about the sexual politics behind his new film, the European financing that allows him to keep working, and his previous stint on a Berlin jury twenty years ago.
