World Cinema Documentary Competition

In an intimate portrait “The Disappearance of My Mother” by debuting Beniamo Barrese (IT) we w­­itness a once-iconic fashion model striving to escape the world of images and disappear for good. But her son's determination to make a final film about her sparks a confrontation with the camera's gaze.

Another debut, “Lapü”, directed by César Alejandro Jaimes & Juan Pablo Polanco (CO) takes us on a sensory journey through the desert of La Guajira in Columbia where a young Wayuu woman exhumes her cousin's remains in order to meet her for the last time.

With remarkably intimate access Petra Costa’s “The Edge of Democracy” (BR) follows Brazil’s embattled leaders Dilma Rousseff and Lula da Silva as they grapple with a scandal born out of their country’s fascist past and inflamed by a furious and ideologically divided nation.

Applications for the 2019 workshop are open now!

DEADLINE: 30th January
