Here you can find an overview of all the films. The programme booklet can be viewed here.
ALLES GUT – I'M OKAY (Germany 2016, Pia Lenz, DOK.deutsch). Djaner and Ghofran, two children who have fled war and persecution, venture out into their new home of Hamburg. Pia Lenz’s observation of the pair has a delicateness that leaves you astonished and speechless.
BERLIN REBEL HIGH SCHOOL (Germany 2017, Alexander Kleider, DOK.deutsch). What is more important: learning by rote blindly or collective understanding? Alexander Kleider’s revealing education study is about a radical, self-managed high school in a Berlin backyard: where there’s no pressure to perform (or bullying) and, in return, happy pupils!
KOMUNIA – COMMUNION (Poland 2016, Anna Zamecka, DOK.panorama). The heartbreaking story of a 14-year-old Polish girl who has to play the roles of mother, father and sister as well as being herself. Caught in the vicious circle of a dysfunctional family, Ola fights with all her strength against the force of her circumstances.
NORMAL AUTISTIC FILM – NORMÁLNÍ AUTISTICKY FILM (Czech Republic 2016, Miroslav Janek, DOK.panorama). “What am I? An Aspie!” Marjam calls out to the director behind the camera – and is mightily proud of it. From the very first second Miroslav Janek’s multifaceted study of a completely “other” world with rules all of its own is enthralling.
