DOK Leipzig 2009 | Radio Report, 2009
H4, ME66, Cubase

The DOK Leipzig 2009, the 52nd International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated films, presented over 300 works from 69 countries during the week from 26 October to 1 November. Many of the films in the German and International Competition programmes were world or German premieres. They deal with essential issues like war, migration, love, work, religion, death or memory. The documentary film, which has the aim of representing reality and describing problems on the basis of individual stories, still lives in the shadows of the feature film. In my opinion, this is a good reason to dedicate a broadcast to the festival.

With the help of my accreditation I was able to go on a journey of discovery. I watched as many films as possible and collected various composite tracks. Within two days I finished this little report, where I cover four outstanding award winning films.

(1) Les arrivants, France, 2009, Claudine Bories, Patrice Chagnard
(2) Die Frau mit den 5 Elefanten, Germany, Switzerland, 2009, Vadim Jendreyko
