The film programme of DOK.fest München. At the cinema. At home.
3 to 14 May 2023 at the Munich venues
8 to 21 May 2023 @home
As always, DOK.fest München opens the view out to the world: with 130 of the best and most current international documentaries from 55 countries. Our goal is the greatest possible participation in our films, which is why we bring them to the big screen in Munich cinemas as well as to home screens throughout Germany: DOK.fest stays dual.
1970 (Poland 2021, Tomasz Wolski, DOK.international Main Competition). 8 days of state terror in communist Poland in 1970 – a drama with puppets and telephone sets.
TRENCHES (France 2021, Loup Bureau, DOK.international Main Competition). A moving, atmospheric documentation of everyday life in the trenches of Donbas.
ULTRAVIOLETTE AND THE BLOOD-SPITTERS GANG (France 2021, Robin Hunzinger, DOK.international Main Competition). Bittersweet Symphony. Emma and Marcelle: a life-changing love that is not allowed to be.
JOURNEY TO THE SUN (Portugal 2021, Ansgar Schaefer, Susana de Sousa Dias, DOK.deutsch Wettbewerb). From Austria to Portugal: former "Caritas children" tell of their period of recuperation in the South after 1945.
HOAMWEH LUNG (Germany 2021, Felix Klee, Student Award). Losing your homeland? Somewhere a horse dies. An expedition in black and white.
MORIR EN MADRID (France, Spain 1963, Frédéric Rossif, Retrospective DOK.network Africa). The civil war and the dictatorship of the Franco regime. A chronicle of a Spanish tragedy.
