Retrospective 75 years of DEFA
On the occasion of the 75th anniversary, we present films from 50 years of DEFA Studio für Wochenschau und Dokumentarfilme. In cooperation with DEFA-Filmverleih Stiftung Deutsche Kinemathek and with the kind support of Icestorm Entertainment
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 DOK.special series is characterised by films on current events and topics. We present our programme together with Munich institutions from culture, society and media.
