The film programme of DOK.fest München. At the cinema. At home.
3 to 14 May 2023 at the Munich venues
8 to 21 May 2023 @home
As always, DOK.fest München opens the view out to the world: with 130 of the best and most current international documentaries from 55 countries. Our goal is the greatest possible participation in our films, which is why we bring them to the big screen in Munich cinemas as well as to home screens throughout Germany: DOK.fest stays dual.
ARADA (Switzerland 2020, Jonas Schaffter, DOK.deutsch Wettbewerb). Three men – born in Switzerland, deported to Turkey. Here they feel like foreigners.
FOLLOW YOU HOME (Denmark 2021, Kathrine Ravn Kruse, DOK.panorama). Reunited in Denmark after nine years: two Afghan brothers fight for their future.
SHADOW GAME (Netherlands 2021, Eefje Blankevoort, Els van Driel, DOK.panorama). Unaccompanied young refugees on the dangerous route through the Balkans
THE WIRE (Croatia, Lithuania, Norway, Slovenia 2021, Tiha K. Gudac, DOK.panorama). A stretch of land between Croatia and Slovenia - a symbol of the EU’s failed refugee policy
THIS RAIN WILL NEVER STOP (Germany, Latvia, Qatar, Ukraine 2020, Alina Gorlova, BEST OF FESTS). The journey of a Kurdish Red Cross worker through the war zones of our time
WANDERING, A ROHINGYA STORY (Canada 2020, Mélanie Carrier, Olivier Higgins, BEST OF FESTS). Stagnation and the ghosts of the past. Everyday life in the world’s biggest refugee camp.
NICHTS NEUES – NO NEWS (Austria, Germany 2021, Lennart Hüper, Munich Premieres). Scrubbing the deck instead of saving refugees: the crew of the “Mission Lifeline” is stuck in Malta’s harbour.
