A common trait among Werner Herzog’s male protagonists – from Timothy Treadwell to Fitzcarraldo to Aguirre – is a flagrant disregard for their own personal safety in pursuit of something greater. It’s tempting to think of Herzog only in these heavily romantic terms. Yet with 1974’s The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner, a short documentary about ski jumper Walter “Woodcarver” Steiner, the idiosyncratic German director reveals something more.
Lelio discusses his collaboration with actress Daniela Vega, balancing heightened style with realistic character work, and his thoughts on ‘political’ filmmaking. Read our Berlin 2017 review of the film here. Sebastián Lelio’s A Fantastic Woman follows Marina, a transgender woman living happily in a heteronormative relationship with her partner, Orlando (Francisco Reyes), until he suddenly dies.
Dumont discusses the making of his Joan of Arc metal musical, achieving the film’s oddball comedy, and his aversion to cinematic moralising. French director Bruno Dumont started his career 20 years ago making shockingly violent art house films, but switched to comedy and slapstick in 2014 with P’tit Quinquin.
At the #Berlinale2018 I highly recommend YOURS IN SISTERHOOD: women across America read unpublished letters from the 1970s sent by readers to feminist magazine "Ms." A beautiful and real film about listening to each other and struggling together. https://t.co/gGfY0rGfY7
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
