DOK Talk Special on Thursday | Thursday 30 October 2014

State Owned Eye–A Conversation with the Masters of the DEFA Camera

For documentary films the camera is just as important as the direction. In the history of documentary, the DEFA-School has actually become known for its unique visual style. Directors such as Jürgen Böttcher and Volker Koepp have developed films that receive a great impact through the poetic realism of cinematographers Thomas Plenert and the field around Christian Lehmann’s school. For the first time in this constellation, the experts will not only talk about the DEFA, but will further evaluate the camera’s role in documentary, specifically on the role of the cinematographer in relation to the artistic process, a theme of fundamental importance for the genre.

Maidan–Krim–Kreml Documentary Film Within the (Media) War

Obviously, the russian - ukranian crisis is more than the desperate combat between two unequal brothers. Moreover, it is known that the media in this conflict, concerning the intangible political, social, and cultural turmoil plays a central role. DOK Leipzig offers a platform of films of the most significant ukranian and russian Directors who work quite differently with the topic of the russian- ukranian crisis. At the DOK Talk Special the Directors discuss the question of Documentary Film and its role beyond the level of Media War. May Documentary or may Art even criticize within this field?

From the End of a Myth. Images of America Post-9/11

The cowboy with the smoking Colt, the endless vastness of plains and later of space, the Statue of Liberty, “Motherland of Democracy,” and “Melting Pot” – America, until the end of the twentieth century, presented the formula for European policy and culture. From 9/11 on – until the NSA scandal – the image of pre-9/11 America crumbles and Edward Snowden enters the world stage as the new American hero. Simultaneously, the fascination for America seems unabated. It is remarkable how many documentary films currently emerge that delve into that myth. What does America now have to tell us?
