Day 3 of the BFI London Film Festival saw young starlet-to-be Saskia Rosendahl in the limelight of the red carpet with co-stars and director Cate Shortland (“Somersault”).
It’s been a few years since Shortland’s last feature made a movie star out of Abbie Cornish, so all eyes will be watching to see the performance elicited from this young former dancer. “Lore” is a challenging film, telling the story of three Nazi children running from allied forces at the end of WWII. An Australian film, but filmed in German, the feature is Australia’s entry for this year’s foreign language Oscar.
Check out our interview with team “Lore” from AFCI’s Beyond Cinema Studio presented by Celebs.com at the Toronto International Film Festival. Portrait photos of Cate and Saskia are by Scott McDermott.
