Geraldine Chaplin, the daughter of the legendary comedian Charlie Chaplin, had the honor of presenting the film “Seneca – On the Creation of Earthquakes” at the Berlinale 2023 alongside Hollywood star John Malkovich. And also talked about her father.
Do films have any influence on big politics?
Cinema legend Geraldine Chaplin (78), the daughter of Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977), is skeptical. She plays alongside John Malkovich (69, “Dangerous Liaisons”) in the Berlinale Special “Seneca – On the Creation of Earthquakes”.
At the press conference on February 20, 2023, she said: “People make films because they hope that they will make a difference. But then they don’t. The rich keep getting richer, the poor keep getting poorer.” Chaplin recalled: “My father made The Great Dictator and he thought he was going to change the world. People just laughed at the film!”
But she thinks it’s great, too, said the daughter of the great director and actor: “Laughter is the greatest weapon anyone can have.”
