Homage Helena Treštíková
The Czech director is a master of long-term observation, the freestyle of documentary work. She herself once described her working method as "time-lapse filmmaking". As part of the homage, we present nine films from different creative phases of the director.
Munich is the home of the filmmakers whose works are gathered together in the Munich premieres. But time and again, the view extends far beyond the city limits.
The educational programme of DOK.fest München considers itself a "school of seeing", which combines media literacy and cultural education. It is aimed at children, young people, families and schools.
