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 first film is PUSHING BOUNDARIES. The film ran in the Student Award section in 2022 and won the student competition.
Supporting film: OLYMPIC WOMEN (DE 2022, Paula Buchta, Laura König-Svetozarova, Friederike Wagner, Fabi Lou Sax, Ayca Noel Tari): The short film tells the story of women in the male-dominated world of competitive sport through the experiences of Olympic athletes Heide Rosendahl, Ulrike Meyfarth, Christiane Krause, Sarah Voss and coach Shanna Poljakova.

Venue of the film screening: Ernst-von-Siemens-Auditorium (Lecture Hall in the Pinakothek der Moderne, Barer Straße 40, 80333 Munich)

Admission: 7,50 euros

Schweiz 2021 – Director: Lesia Kordonets – Admission: 7,50 euros

Sport and politics have never been completely separable. When the Crimean peninsula was annexed by Russia in 2014, the Ukrainian Paralympic team lost their new training centre overnight. For five athletes and an enchantingly imperturbable official, it is the start of the long road to medals in Rio de Janeiro. Jan Sebening

We present the German premiere of the film.
