Tilda Swinton: We Need to Talk About Kevin

In a cooperation with the London based Women's Film Festival Birds Eye View the Dortmund | Cologne IWFF is going to present Lynne Ramsay's highly debated and awarded new film "We Need to Talk about Kevin", starring Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly.

Eva, a succesfull travel writer, has lost everything. Her own son committed a monstrous crime and destroyed the whole family. Now Eva has to deal not only with her grief, but also with the question whether she too is responsible for her child’s actions. Did she ever really love her son? Did she fail as a mother? What could she have done to prevent the inconceivable?

Bird's Eye View, the great London based women's film festival brings this film to Cologne as the British film of their choice. Due to the radical changes within the funding of British film the friends in London were forced to postpone their festival to 2013. We therefore invited them and look forward to presenting the film together. We certainly will take this as an opportunity to talk about the situation of women's film festivals today.
