DOK.fest goes Nantesbuch

In the heart of the Bavarian foothills of the Alps, Gut Nantesbuch is surrounded by forests, meadows and moors. This is where the Art and Nature Foundation works on its extensive nature grounds: on approx. 320 ha, it develops and maintains the landscape with comprehensive measures in renaturation, landscape conservation, forest conversion and extensive agriculture and forestry. The "Langes Haus" serves as a central event venue and starting point for a diverse cultural and educational programme. Since summer 2022, we have been able to present documentary films here in an exceptional location.

Entry: 5.30pm, start: 6.00pm

“The story of life is the story of relationships.” At Copenhagen Zoo, a young male giraffe, Marius, was shot to maintain the dynamic of the herd. The director Max Kestner uses this case to examine the big questions of life: what separates humans from other forms of life and what unites them? A film about relationships, power and the question of consciousness. Veronica Loebner


Danish filmmaker Max Kestner graduated from the National Film School of Denmark in 1997, where he teaches today. After graduating, he worked for the Danish television station DR TV. His documentaries are screened at renowned film festivals around the world. His latest documentary LIFE AND OTHER PROBLEMS opened the Copenhagen film festival CPH:DOX in 2024.
