ZWISCHEN DEN BILDERN (Deutschland 2017, Martin Friedrich). Der Dokumentarfilm ZWISCHEN DEN BILDERN begleitet die Workshopreihe Comic Camp des KJR München, in der Jugendliche eigene Comics entwickelten. Bei der feierlichen Premiere können BesucherInnen an Kreativ-Stationen selbst aktiv werden.
EL HOMBRE QUE VIÓ DEMASIADO – THE MAN WHO SAW TOO MUCH (Mexico 2015, Trisha Ziff, DOK.guest Canada). Enrique Metinides loves his job as much as it terrifies him. Since the age of nine, he has been photographing the scenes of accidents and is in high demand. This portrait reveals the fragility of life in his pictures as well as that of his own.
CAMERAPERSON (United States 2016, Kirsten Johnson, DOK.international). CAMERAPERSON is a diary of memories and images – a collection of documentary footage from Kirsten Johnson’s 25-year career as a camera operator. A film about the influence of images on the way that we see the world.
DRIES (Belgium, France, Germany 2016, Reiner Holzemer, DOK.panorama). Light, effortless, finely crafted. This is how Dries Van Noten’s creations could be described – if it weren’t for his lust for perfection, poetry and the absolute. Fashion for lively, passionate people – “bigger than life.”
MYSTERIOUS MASTERPIECE – COLD CASE TORRENTIUS (Netherlands 2016, Maarten de Kroon, DOK.panorama). A mysterious still life has the art world in suspense. To date no one has been able to explain how Torrentius, one of the most infamous libertines of the 17th century, could achieve such photographic perfection. An absorbing thriller from the world of art history.
WILLIAM KENTRIDGE, TRIUMPHS AND LAMENTS (Italy 2016, Giovanni Troilo, DOK.panorama). A monumental portrait of the Eternal City. William Kentridge allows us an insight into the creation of his imposing project, which kaleidoscopically presents the rise and fall of Rome on the riverbed of the Tiber. A Making Of film with a triumphant outcome.
