The films in our DOK.deutsch competition series once again cover a broad spectrum of social themes and discourses. Also a commentary on the interaction between public and private life.
Several hundred thousand euros for a pigeon: a price many super rich in Dubai or China are willing to pay because especially in China betting on pigeon races has become a million-dollar business. HIGHFLYERS talks about winners and losers in a game ruled by the new powers of global economy.
We present the world premiere of the film at DOK.fest München 2019.
