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



Brasilien 2018 – Director: Daniel Gonçalves – Original with English subtitles

In a deeply personal film, a young director from Rio de Janeiro looks into the cause of his physical disability. At the same time, family videos and present-day footage recount Daniel’s life. But what kind of story would he have told if his upbringing had not been so privileged?
