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.
Homage Heidi Specogna
The gaze into the foreign life, the curiosity for the other perspective run through the cinematic work of the multiple award-winning Swiss filmmaker Heidi Specogna. The homage presents six films from four decades of her artistic work.

DAS KURZE LEBEN DES JOSÉ ANTONIO GUTIERREZ (Germany, Switzerland 2006, Heidi Specogna). A green card soldier in the Iraq war: José Antonio Gutierrez died a hero, fighting for a foreign land.
DAS SCHIFF DES TORJÄGERS (Germany, Switzerland 2010, Heidi Specogna). The transport of child slaves in the 21st century? It happens – and the connections reach all the way to the Bundesliga.
STAND UP MY BEAUTY (Germany, Switzerland 2021, Heidi Specogna). Female empowerment: a song for Ethiopian women who follow their own dreams.
