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.
The guest country series takes a look at Spain, our unknown neighbour in the southwest. In a total of five films, we experience surprising and illuminating interior views of Spanish society today, light and shadow sides of Spanish reality. This series is made possible by the support of Acción Cultural Española (AC/E).
918 NIGHTS – 918 GAU (Spain 2021, Arantza Santesteban). A woman in jail – what actually happens there? A chronicle of identity and the power of interpretation.
ALTSASU (THAT NIGHT) – ALTSASU (GAU HURA) (Spain 2021, Marc Parramon Bori, Amets Arzallus Antia). A judicial scandal involving eight young Basque women is causing a stir in Spain: They are accused of terrorism.
EL CÍRCULO – A CIRCLE OF MEN (Spain 2021, Iván Roiz, Álvaro Priante). A men’s circle somewhere in Spain – talking therapy to combat machismo.
MAGALUF GHOST TOWN (Spain 2021, Miguel Angel Blanca). A ghost town and a tourist stronghold – the two faces of a small town in Mallorca.
