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.
Munich is the home of the filmmakers whose works are gathered together in the Munich premieres. But time and again, the view extends far beyond the city limits.
Exchange at eye level. The festival's focus on Africa promotes the perception and representation of the African continent beyond short-lived headlines and stereotypes.
