THE FILM PROGRAMME OF DOK.fest MÜNCHEN @HOME
DOK.fest München 2021 @home came to a close on 23 May. 131 films from 43 countries were shown.
Here you can find an overview of all the films. The programme booklet can be viewed here.
GLOBAL FAMILY (Deutschland 2017, Melanie Andernach, Andreas Köhler). Scattered across the globe as a result of the Somali Civil War, the Shaash family has to make an important decision: where should Imra (88) live? At the same time the four generations of the transnational refugee family are each following their own dreams of family, home and the future.
LOTS OF KIDS, A MONKEY AND A CASTLE (Spain 2017, Gustavo Salmeron). “A chaotic family makes chaotic decisions in a chaotic way.” This sentence by one family member sums up their clan rather well. The eccentric but lovable Julita, mother of the filmmaker Gustavo Salmerón, pulls the strings. An intoxicating docu-comedy.
SPRECHSTUNDE – ATELIER DE CONVERSATION (Austria, France 2017, Bernhard Braunstein). What do clichees and a metro station have to do with each other? What is the meaning of love? What do people miss the most when they are far away from home? We learn the answers to these questions in a weekly discussion group at Paris’ Centre Pompidou. People with the most diverse identities and backgrounds get together to discuss with one another.
ZENTRALFLUGHAFEN THF – CENTRAL AIRPORT THF (Brazil, France, Germany 2018, Karim Aïnouz). On the historic site of the former Berlin Tempelhof airport, two worlds meet each other. Makeshift accommodation temporarily houses refugees and, on the other side of the fence, lies Tempelhofer Feld, a public park and playing field for leisure activities and an alternative lifestyle.
