From June to April: our year-round documentary film programme

You don't have to wait for the festival in May: In cooperation with numerous Munich cultural institutions, we present documentaries worth seeing all year round at DOK.aroundtheclock. To the event dates


DOK.aroundtheclock: OVER THE LIMIT and RUN LIKE A GIRL on 29 September

A year in the life of a young Russian gymnast on her way to the Olympics in OVER THE LIMIT: Competitions and hard training determine Rita's long days. Real feelings are unwelcome, every blow of fate has its time until after the grand finale. And RUN LIKE A GIRL reveals to us the gap between the world of top Olympic sport and real life: Visiline Jepkesho is one of the world's best marathon runners and has to feed her extended family with the low prize money. We will be presenting both films at the Pinakothek der Moderne at the end of September. More to come
