Dutch Docs at DOKFest

14 May 2019

Dutch docs are well represented at this years' Munich International Documentary Film Festival (DOKFest). Dutch Filmmaker Heddy Honigmann is honoured with a retrospective of her work. Furthermore, eleven (co-) productions from the Netherlands have been selected for the festival. DOKFest takes place 8-19 May 2019.

Three Dutch (co-) productions will be competing for the DOK.fest Award of SOS-Kinderdörfer Weltweit. This award focuses on films with a strong perspective on young living environments. Bruce Lee and the Outlaw directed by Joost Vandebrug (NL co-producer Revolver Amsterdam), The Miracle of the Little Prince by Marjoleine Boonstra (Pieter van Huystee Film) and You Are My Friend by directed by Peter and Petra Lataster-Czisch (L&P Producties) have been selected.

Selected in the Best of Fests section are Kabul, City in the Wind directed by Aboozar Amini (Silk Road Film Salon) and Sakawa by Ben Asamoah (Pieter van Huystee Film).

Several other Dutch co-productions have been selected in various sections of the festival. Tanzania Transit directed by Jeroen van Velzen in the DOK.network Africa section, Sheep Hero by Ton van Zantvoort in the Critics and Visionaries section, Freedom Fields by Naziha Arebi in the DOK.Horizonte section and Bellingcat: Truth in a Post-truth World (directed by Hans Pool) which will be screened in the DOK.Special section.

Part of the festival's programme is a retrospective of Peruvian-Dutch filmmaker Heddy Honigmann, in which six of her documentaries will be screened. Honigmann's films selected for this retrospective are Buddy (2018), Oblivion (2008), Forever (2006), Crazy (1999), The Underground Orchestra (1997) and Metal and Melancholy (1993). DOKFest on Honigmann:

"Voyeurism is foreign to her. In her films we do not look at the protagonists but through them and with them towards us. Her perspective is deeply humanistic: she celebrates harsh life in all its beauty."
