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.
DARK RIDER (Belgium, Netherlands 2020, Eva Küpper, DOK.international Main Competition). Breaking a motorcycle speed record – a lifelong dream and great challenge for Ben, who is visually impaired
HE'S MY BROTHER (Denmark 2021, Cille Hannibal, Christine Hanberg, DOK.international Main Competition). What does the world feel like with three senses? A Danish family’s struggle for their son.
EVA-MARIA (Austria 2021, Lukas Ladner, DOK.deutsch Wettbewerb). Getting pregnant with physical disabilities? An act of self-empowerment!
THE LAST SHELTER (France, Mali, South Africa 2020, Ousmane Samassékou, DOK.horizonte Competition – Cinema of Urgency). The question is whether to stay or to go – and at what cost? Seen from an African perspective
EL NIÑO DE FUEGO – BOY FROM THE BLAZE (Spain 2020, Ignacio Acconcia, DOK.panorama). Stepping into the limelight: musician Alexio begins to live again after a serious accident.
NOT GOING QUIETLY (United States 2021, Nicholas Bruckman, DOK.focus Empowerment). Supportive, inspiring and motivational: a powerful portrait of the activist and ALS patient Ady Barkan.
ANNE FLIEGT – ANNE VLIEGT (Netherlands 2010, Catherine van Campen, DOK.education). 11-year-old Anne, a cheerful pretty girl, tries every day to make sure people don't notice her tics. The neurological disorder Tourette's syndrome forces her to do this: she has to twist, twitch or even lick things. If she could manage to talk openly about it, it might make her life easier.
