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.
ADIEU SAUVAGE (Belgium 2023, Sergio Guataquira Sarmiento, DOK.international Main Competition). From Belgium to the Columbian jungle. A poetic tale about the complexity of “origin”.
LA EMPRESA (Germany 2023, André Siegers, DOK.international Main Competition). Illegal border crossings re-enacted for tourists: the Caminata Nocturna in Mexico.
ZONA NORTE (Mexico 2022, Javier Ávila, DOK.international Main Competition). Burdened by the guilt of failure: outcasts on the streets of Tijuana.
LÁZARO AND THE SHARK. CUBA UNDER THE SURFACE (Cuba, United States 2022, William Sabourin O'Reilly, DOK.horizonte Competition – Cinema of Urgency). Singing, conga, hip swinging. During carnival, people celebrate their contradictory homeland of Cuba.
TANJA – TAGEBUCH EINER GUERILLERA – TANJA – UP IN ARMS (Germany 2023, Marcel Mettelsiefen, DOK.horizonte Competition – Cinema of Urgency). From university student to guerrilla fighter: a compelling portrait of the ex-FARC member, Tanja Nijmeijer.
VAI CAVALO (Brazil, France 2022, Harold Grenouilleau, DOK.horizonte Competition – Cinema of Urgency). Riding doped racehorses, 12 year old Dirlinho and his cousin compete on dusty tracks – risking their lives in the process.
