International Documentary Films

This year, strong women dominate the documentary series. The films deal with religion, wrongly forgotten as well as courageously fighting women. Four legendary Georgian women chess players tell of their successes with wit and irony, and we are amazed that we did not know them before. We get to know courageous Indian Dalit women who have been running their own newspaper very successfully since 2002 and a Turkish-German lawyer, author and first German female imam. Charlotte Gainsbourg delivers a tender and intimate portrait of her mother. Another portrait of an artist and a film about the world's best-selling piece of furniture, the plastic stacking chair Monobloc, complete the programme.
