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.
NON-ALIGNED: SCENES FROM THE LABUDOVIĆ REELS (Croatia, France, Montenegro, Qatar, Serbia 2022, Mila Turajlić, DOK.international Main Competition). The non-aligned movement seen through Tito’s cameraman’s lens.
THEATRE OF VIOLENCE (Denmark 2023, Lukasz Konopa, Emil Langballe, DOK.international Main Competition). A former Ugandan child soldier who later became a commander is on trial. Is he a perpetrator or a victim?
FÜR IMMER – FOR EVER (Germany 2023, Pia Lenz, DOK.deutsch Wettbewerb). Together for 70 years: Eva and Dieter’s love story is far from the likes of Tinder & Co.
GRETAS GEBURT – GRETA'S BIRTH (Germany 2023, Katja Baumgarten, DOK.deutsch Wettbewerb). A child has died. The midwife is on trial. 59 days of hearings. Then the verdict.
LE SPECTRE DE BOKO HARAM (Cameroon, France 2023, Cyrielle Raingou, DOK.horizonte Competition – Cinema of Urgency). Volleys of gunfire in the distance: the threat of the terrorist militia Boko Haram is omnipresent in North Cameroon.
BORDER CONVERSATIONS (Germany 2022, Jonathan Brunner, Student Award). How to fight against nothingness? A film from the no-man's land on the EU eastern border.
KRISTOS, THE LAST CHILD (France, Greece, Italy 2022, Giulia Amati, BEST OF FESTS). School or shepherding: What will Kristos, the last primary school child on the Island of Arki, choose?
THIS KIND OF HOPE (Germany, Switzerland 2023, Pawel Siczek, BEST OF FESTS). From Vice Foreign Minister to dissident: Andrei Sannikov’s long battle for a free Belarus.
