Time to Meet European Directors!

DOK_Leipzig_Talks_2013

The world of documentary film as audiences know it: darkened cinema halls full of keen eyes, heavy professional equipment and festive moments reserved for the time of film festivals. However, what about the other side of contemporary documentary events? How difficult is it to choose the right documentary theme? What are most days of directors spent outside the unique festival times like? Follow 4 parts of interviews with leading representatives of European documentary made within the special programme series of Germany’s DOK Leipzig documentary festival DOK LEIPZIG TALKS from March 24 to 30 at DAFilms.com for free!


DOK Leipzig Talks is one of the special accompanying programmes organized by the German festival for film professionals and the general public. To learn more about the importance of industry programmes, platforms focusing on working with filmmakers organized by documentary festivals, read our current interview with the festival representatives.

In DOK Leipzig Talks, original filmmaking approaches are presented by four filmmakers: Daniela de Felice, Marina Razbezhkina and the directing tandem of Johanna Domke and Marouan Omara. Using her film CASA as an example, French filmmaker Daniela de Felice introduces the creative process of the unique genre of animated documentary film. Russian producer Marina Razbezhkina, cofounder of a theatre and documentary academy, looks behind the scenes of filmmaking in the East European region. Johanna Domke and Marouan Omara have attracted festival audiences with their untraditional rendering of the Lotus Revolution of 2011 in Egypt, depicted in their film CROP by means of journalistic images. Further filmmakers dealing with current social issues include Slovak director Robert Kirchoff, whose latest film NORMALIZATION revisits the story of a murder of 37 years ago, and Bregtje van der Haak, Dutch documentarist and journalist employing a transmedia approach in her works. In a separate contribution, famous Danish director, screenwriter and producer Jon Bang Carlsen, renowned for his original use of the method of film montage and the genre of feature documentary, gives an insight into the film industry.

Meet these recognized filmmakers as well as other leading personalities of European documentary via DAFilms.com from March 24 to 30 for free!
