DOC ALLIANCE SELECTION OF THE MOST INTERESTING FILMS

empire3

We have prepared a retrospective of the films nominated for the Doc Alliance Selection Award (a distinctive choice of films from all DAFilms partner festivals).

You can stream 4 of them to May 26 FOR FREE: The Anabasis of May and Fusako Shigenobu, Masao Adachi and 27 Years without Images – director Eric Baudelaire reveals one of the best kept secrets of Japanese cinematography and society associated with the Japanese red army. The story of a forgotten visionary, a maverick, a wanderer: One Billion Happy People. Or a filmic search for the worldwide phenomenon of the micronation movement Empire Me - New Worlds Are Happening. Work Hard, Play Hard about a world in which people are completely committed to making their job their purpose in life.

In 2013 the Doc Alliance is proud to welcome Doclisboa as its seventh partner and has chosen a new procedure for selecting the films that will be screened at Visions du Réel, Planete Doc Film Festival Warsaw, FID Marseille, IDFF Jihlava, Doclisboa, DOK Leipzig and CPH:DOX Copenhagen in the Doc Alliance Selection section. Each member festival proposes a film and a film critic and will screen a minimum of 3 out of the 7 nominated films.

The film critics have formed a Jury and have selected the film:
CATIVERO / CAPTIVITY directed by André Gil Mata
The winner accepted the Doc Alliance Selection Award on May 20, 2013 at the Cannes film festival.
