60TH INTERNATIONAL LEIPZIG FESTIVAL FOR DOCUMENTARY AND ANIMATED FILM
DOK Leipzig Film Festival

Now and Then – Then and Now 3


Now and Then – Then and Now 3


CATALOGUE TEXT
To celebrate the 60th edition of DOK Leipzig we are – joyfully – breaking a few rules. We’re not waiting for the official opening of the anniversary edition but will start partying three days in advance. We venture to move to unfamiliar venues. We celebrate key films from six decades of festival history with revivals and salon conversations.
Time trips which take us from the present day to the past and back – following themes, cinematographic languages and ideological changes of atmosphere.

Now and Then – Then and Now 3
When the art of film actively addresses the other arts it might be called active art. These crossovers produce progressive rainstorms. Because these films go down a storm as they take up making music, hand-drawn self-portraits, literary and ideological narratives.
