DOK.fest meets MVHS: Film Series Here & Now – 50 Years Olympic Games 1972

Contemporary documentaries on politics and society

The series Hier & Jetzt – a cooperation by the Münchner Volkshochschule with DOK.fest München – is entering another round. The film series shows outstanding contemporary documentaries that open up new perspectives on the Federal Republic of Germany in terms of film aesthetics as well as political analysis. These include observations of everyday life, portraits of individual fates, interviews, compilations, experimental forms or socially critical analyses of our present.

This edition of Hier & Jetzt  is part of our film series on the 50th anniversary of the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, where we address the historical context, the political dimension of sport and the aftermath of the Munich Games.
