Madonna to Preview W.E. at Berlin Festival

According to German tabloid newspaper B.Z., Madonna is to give a sneak preview of her latest film project during the Berlin International Film Festival next month, organizers said Thursday, confirming media reports.


The 52-year-old singer and actress is to show excerpts from her project, entitled W.E., about the relationship between British king Edward VIII and American socialite Wallis Simpson during the 1930s.

The private screening will reportedly take place on the first weekend of the Berlin festival. The full film is not to be shown until the Cannes film festival in May.

The first film directed by Madonna – a romantic comedy entitled Filth and Wisdom – was screened at the Berlin film festival three years ago.
