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 Nikolaus Geyrhalter
His unmistakable signature – visually powerful, epic, opulent-hypnotic – leaves a lasting impression. The autodidact, whose works are always a deep bow to the documentary, is always concerned in his films with more than the purely mental experience. The homage to Nikolaus Geyrhalter presents six films from four decades of his artistic work.
ABENDLAND (Austria 2011, Nikolaus Geyrhalter). Europe by night: an associative journey that involuntarily reveals the political.
DIE BAULICHE MASSNAHME (Austria 2018, Nikolaus Geyrhalter). A fence around the border – a "structural measure" plunges the Brenner into crisis.
HOMO SAPIENS (Austria, Germany 2016, Nikolaus Geyrhalter). The world without human beings – a journey to abandoned places.
MATTER OUT OF PLACE (Austria 2022, Nikolaus Geyrhalter). A visually powerful take on the global waste problem – poetic and sobering in equal measure.
PRIPYAT (Austria 1999, Nikolaus Geyrhalter). A 30-kilometre nuclear exclusion zone. Survival twelve years after the Chernobyl disaster
