Dutch Docs at DOKFest Munchen 2020

1 May 2020

No less than eight (co-)productions from the Netherlands have been selected for DOK.fest München. The 35th edition will take place online from 6-24 May 2020.

Dutch documentaries are well represented across all sections of the festival, including the competitions.
Farewell Paradise by Sonja Wyss will have its international premiere in the DOK.deutsch competition. The film world premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) last February and is produced by Basalt Film. Farewell Paradise shows the search for a truth within a broken family. 

Maasja Ooms' documentary Punks (Prod: Cerutti Film) will screen in DOK.international, the international competition programme. Punks won both the Award for Best Editing and the Award for Best Cinematography at IDFA 2019. The film is an intimate portrait of problem teenagers who are placed under temporary supervision.

They Call Me Babu by Sandra Beerends is selected for DOK.horizonte, the competition programme that focuses on emerging countries. The film is Beerends' first feature length documentary and is produced by Pieter van Huystee Film. In They Call Me Babu Alima tells her story, which plays out against the backdrop of World War II and the struggle for independence, over unique footage from various archives.

Another Dutch film in the DOK.horizonte programme is Days of Cannibalism by Teboho Edkins, minority coproduced by Keplerfilm. The documentary is an exploration of the frontiers that Chinese face in Africa, and Africans in China.

Dutch cinema is also represented in several other DOK.fest programmes. Sidik and the Leopard by Reber Dosky and produced by Dieptescherpte will screen in Best of Fests. King Of The Cruise by Sophie Dros (prod: Halal Docs) is selected for the DOK.panorama programme.

Furthermore, two short docs will screen in the DOK.education programme: Our Island by Lennah Koster (prod: Tangerine Tree) and Champ by Cassandra Offenberg (prod: Hazazah).
