‘The Party’ Named Number 1 in the ‘5 Exciting Films’ at Berlinale

We are delighted that ‘The Party’ music supervised by Air-Edel’s Matt Biffa, assisted by Ciara Elwis, has been named number 1 in the ‘5 Exciting Films’ at Berlinale – Berlin International Film Festival.

The beauty of the new Sally Potter film ‘The Party’ is that you never really know what you’re going to get. A creatively restless British director who last graced screens with 2012’s ‘Ginger and Rosa’, Potter has never been shy about her background on the stage, that bodes well for ‘The Party’, which sounds like it could have been a riotous one-act play.

Inspired by the partisanship that has divided Britain down the center and isolated the country from the continent that had been happy to wear it like a crown, the film — told in real-time — is set at a private gathering where the guests are suddenly deprived of their most deeply held political beliefs.

With a guest list that includes Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Patricia Clarkson, Timothy Spall, and the great Bruno Ganz, everyone in Berlin will be clamouring for an invite.
