“I was surprised at how close to home Exit hit for me emotionally, although I do not have a violent past, and do not (at least not yet) count violent extremists among people I know.” #DOK Leipzig
We’re about to get starstruck in Leipzig: Legendary German director Werner Herzog will attend this year’s DOK Fest, presenting his documentary “Meeting Gorbachev” and fielding questions from the audience.
“El hito histĂłrico del ’68’ serĂˇ abordado desde los diferentes mĂˇrgenes que el audiovisual supo retratar, generando asĂ un caleidoscopio histĂłrico que harĂˇ justicia a la complejidad del momento.” #DOK Leipzig 2018
DOK Leipzig opens tomorrow. We give you a bunch of mini reviews and a sneak peek into the universes of young protagonists in some of the film fest’s highlights.
For DOK Leipzig’s 60th edition, the organizers would like to invite “the whole city to dance with the winners.”
Unannounced screenings after midnight? Films smuggled over the border in a suitcase? Hotel rooms bugged by the Stasi? Legends about the Leipzig film festival abound.
