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.
From progressive rock to country from the former Swaziland to current Viennese singer-songwriters: DOK.music delivers music for the eyes and ears. Presented by ARTE.
CESÁRIA ÉVORA (Portugal, United States 2022, Ana Sofia Fonseca). A story of depression and all the stages of the world. The Diva of the Cape Verde Islands – the one who sang barefoot.
LE MALI 70 (Germany 2022, Markus CM Schmidt). The Berlin band Omniversal Earkestra meets jazz legends from Mali: an Afro big band road movie
REWIND & PLAY (France, Germany 2022, Alain Gomis). Jazz musician Thelonious Monk is confronted with stereotypes during a TV recording in Paris in 1969.
THE KAISER OF ATLANTIS (Argentina, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Spain 2022, Sebastián Alfie). Music from hell – blisteringly relevant today. A provocative chamber opera from Theresienstadt.
