DOK.special40 years AG DOK

A small circle of documentary filmmakers joined together in 1980 with the aim of creating a lively documentary film culture in Germany. 40 years later, AG DOK is a professional association of more than 900 filmmakers and is also the largest film association in Germany. DOK.fest München is celebrating this with an anniversary programme: four selected documentary films by AG DOK members shed light on important socio-political issues of their respective times and thus exemplify four decades of a lively documentary film culture in Germany.
