Please note that this event requires a regular cinema ticket.
This year's studio talks, in cooperation with the Hochschule für Fernsehen und Film (HFF), will focus on diversity in the documentary film. We will take a closer look at three documentaries selected from the official festival program, which are characterized by a particularly diverse production process. The respective screenings will be followed by an in-depth discussion with the film team. Moderated by the Documentary Film and Television Journalism Department, they will talk about making methods, approaches as well as hurdles and solutions.

AMONG US WOMEN
A portrait of Ethiopian obstetrics in transition. Despite the possibility of giving birth in a hospital, Hulu opts for a home birth for her fourth child. This is a brave step since patriarchal structures still hold power. Intimately and with great empathy, the film depicts the significance of female community. Andrea Erja
