Lost in Karastan: notes from the Hamburg Film Festival

A very dear friend has seen Lost in Karastan at the Hamburg Film Festival and let me know some of her notes from the event.

First, she really liked the movie.  She says that Ben Hopkins attended the event and answered some questions from the audience.

One German fan asked Ben if Matthew Macfadyen needed to be convinced to take the role of Emil Forester in the movie.  Ben replied that no, Matthew loved the character of Emil.  Ben also said that Matthew is a very kind and lovely man.

Ben also told the audience that after the theatrical release of Lost in Karastan, it will eventually go to DVD, which is fortunate for those that may never get to see the movie otherwise.
