Madonna is in Berlin today, attending the 58th edition of the Berlinale Festival and the screening of her first short movie as a director, Filth and Wisdom. Madonna arrived in Berlin with the movie's crew yesterday night and attended the screening before answering the European press' questions during a devoted press conference. Talking about her first experience as a director, she explains "I have always been inspired by the films of Godard, Visconti, Pasolini and Fellini and hope that I may one day make something that comes close to their genius". The movie, which stars Gogol Bordello's singer Eugene Hutz, also features several music clips from the band as well as a clip of Madonna's Erotica song.
