DIE BUCHT – THE COVE (United States 2009, Louie Psihoyos, DOK.special). A covert investigation, specialist Hollywood cameras and a collective mission: to document the bloody acts in Taiji’s “Dolphin Cove” for the first time. Louie Psihoyos’ alarming mix of nature documentary, action film and political thriller is deeply disturbing: afterwards no one will want to watch “Flipper” again.
MAN ON WIRE (United Kingdom, United States 2008, James Marsh, DOK.special). “It's impossible, that's sure. So let's start working!” In the early hours of 7th August 1974, Philippe Petit pulled off an enormous coup, putting his life on the line. For 45 minutes he balanced between the towers of the World Trade Center. It is an image that epitomises the last century. James Marsh’s breezy biopic is about a man who reaches for the stars and risks everything for his dreams.
THE TIMES OF HARVEY MILK (United States 1984, Robert Epstein, DOK.special). "You gotta give ’em hope!” Harvey Milk’s election speech is legendary. He was involved in the US Civil Rights movement as a gay martyr. Robert Epstein’s in depth portrait conjures up the spirit of the 1970s, when the private was also always very political.
