DOK.fest Screening & Studio Talk: MIDWIVES
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 characterised by the approach of a 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.

A village in western Myanmar: two midwives, one a Buddhist, the other a Muslim Rohingya, work side by side in a tiny clinic. Surrounded by angry mobs, burning houses and bombings, they do not allow themselves to be discouraged from doing what is important to them in life. An impressive long-term study that is intense and moving. Selime Schauer-Altinbilek
