DOK.fest goes Pinakothek der Moderne
In cooperation with the Pinakothek der Moderne (Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum), we present three films related to sport and the Olympic Games as part of the exhibition "DESIGN FOR OLYMPIA" and this year's 50th anniversary of the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Beforehand, documentary pre-films by students of the Faculty of Design at the Munich University of Applied Sciences will be shown, which take the exhibition as an opportunity to delve into topics such as gender, equal rights or inclusion.
The second film we will show is the sports documentary OVER THE LIMIT, which was screened in the DOK.international series at DOK.fest München in 2018.
Supporting film: NO LIMITS (DE 2022, Adrian Strohmer, Fabian Gruber, Anna Meck und Kilian Glassner): Ben Neumann is 17 years old. He wears a black wetsuit and a yellow helmet at our meeting - only the three dots on Ben's helmet tell us that he is blind. Ben's big dream is to take part in the 2028 Paralympic Games in Los Angeles.
Venue of the screening: Ernst-von-Siemens-Auditorium (Lecture Hall in the Pinakothek der Moderne, Barer Straße 40, 80333 Munich)
Admission: 7,50 euros

OVER THE LIMIT
She takes a bow after every competition with a smile on her face, yet beyond public view Rita tends to be serious. The pressure that the Russian gymnast is under is immense. Day after day she stoically endures her trainer’s harsh tone. The film spends a year with the 20-year-old as she heads towards the Olympics – and an important decision.
Production: Telemark Maciej Kubicki,. Producer: Anna Kepinska. Length: 74 min. International Sales: Autlook Filmsales
