DOK.fest München meets MVHS: Film Series Hier & Jetzt – Männerwelten

Contemporary documentaries on politics and society

The series Hier & Jetzt – a cooperation with DOK.fest Munich – is entering its 4th round. In the current programme, we take a look at "men's worlds": they are supposed to be strong, active and successful, at the same time empathetic, caring and cautious – the expectations placed on men have become more diverse but also more contradictory.
How do they deal with these changed social demands? How can they lead a successful life between traditional role models, new challenges and their own desires? The films portray men's lives that are very individual and personal but at the same time reflect social attributions and constraints. (Film selection: Anne Thomé)

In cooperation with the Münchner Volkshochschule.

To be a real guy, an alpha male, someone women pay attention to: That is the declared goal of the three young men Gabriel, Robert and Sebastian, who are part of the steadily growing German pick-up scene. Pick-up stands for "art of seduction" and teaches various methods of picking up women on a now highly professional level – the more, the better. After all, male identity is often associated with success with women. A critical look behind the scenes of commercial seminars for the "art of seduction" and the search for a – supposedly – new image of men.
