Media Library: Family Affairs – Documentary Investigations in the Inner Circle
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?
An online talk with:
Myriam Jacob-Allard, director of Alice’s Four Stories
Hannah Schweier, director of 80.000 Schnitzels
Rocco Di Mento, director of The Blunder of Love
Amélie Cabocel, director of Forgotten Lands
Moderators: Borjana Gaković and Marie Kloos, Selection Team DOK Leipzig
