Partner Presentation: AG Animationsfilm

Accredited guests welcome
English

Curious about German animation? Catch a glimpse at brand new German animation and animated documentary projects at this Partner Presentation! Learn more about how the films were made and participate in our Q&A with the producers and directors and discover something new for your festival or slate!

The first project is an animated documentary TV-series that was produced by ZDF das kleine Fernsehspiel and ZDF digital. The series consists of 11 short films that visualise personal stories about political change in East and West Germany at the end of the 80s and early 90s. The stories are told by the protagonists themselves who contributed their memories to a digital audio-podcast called My Change – Our Unity? (Meine Wende – Unsere Einheit?).

The Last Whale Singer, still in pre-production, is the first feature animation that was selected for the initiative Outstanding Films for Children, which is a nationwide funding scheme created by public broadcasters, regional and national film funds and representatives of the German film industry and politicians. It tells the story of a teenage humpback whale who must face his fears and summon a mystical song to save the oceans from destruction by a monstrous creature. The film will be produced by Telescope Animation and directed by Reza Memari who also wrote the script. A series and a game are in development.

The third project is Student Academy Award-winner Ahmad Saleh’s (Ayny, 2016) brand-new short Night. The project was awarded the film prize for emerging Arab-German co-productions of the Robert Bosch Foundation in 2017. The stop motion animation, a co-production between Jordan, Qatar, Palestine and Germany, is now ready for distribution and looking for its world premiere.

DOK Speaks Up

Family Affairs – Documentary Investigations in the Inner Circle

Free entry: dok-leipzig.de
English

Autobiographical documentary film has developed into a popular and widespread genre over the last decades. Initially often combined with family histories and the historiography of global - and often traumatic - events such as wars and other catastrophes, it now functions as a foil through which an understanding of complex interrelationships can be created by means of empathy and awareness raising for “micro-stories”. But the method is also fruitful as a means of addressing a wide range of universal problems: the search for self-realisation or the burden of family inheritance, economic or emotional fragility, questions of identity and belonging, or life in old age. We talk to the filmmakers whose films approach global themes from different perspectives at DOK Leipzig this year, based on their own family histories.
How does one film one's own family? What is the position of the directors, who sometimes act as silent observers, sometimes as the centre of events? How do you deal with found footage and materials from your own family archives? And how much distance is necessary?
