International Documentary Films

As diverse as life itself! Six extraordinary and thematically very different films make up this section. They address major issues faced by humanity, such as war, peace and justice, but also provide intimate insights. The family story of a Tunisian mother and her four daughters is told in a formal, very special way. An extreme mountaineer philosophises about life and his passion. Grow old vibrantly and creatively - this is what an 84-year-old DJ shows us. A subject that is rarely dealt with: intersexuality - the ordeal of two people in South Africa is presented. A film about the development of the world of images, from camera obscura to YouTube livestream, rounds off the programme - instructive and funny.
