The formal qualities of the films in our DOK.panorama competition are as diverse as their themes and represent the diversity of documentary narratives.



Estland 2019 – Director: Marko Raat – Original with English subtitles

Comforting words, last rites. In their exile communities in Canada, three Estonian priests spend a lot of time in cemeteries. With subtlety and an aptitude for quiet serenity, Marki Raat examines faith, home and identity in communities that are growing ever smaller.

We present the German premiere of the film at DOK.fest München 2019.
