DocPoint Picks of the Day: Wednesday, Jan 30th (2019)

The third day of the festival is full of unique events, excellent documentary films and interesting meetings with the makers!

MONROVIA, INDIANA by Frederick Wiseman, who is regarded as the most important American documentarist, provides an insight into the life in the American countryside and starts the day in Kino Regina. BAMBOO STORIES gets its world premiere in a sold-out screening – the director Shaheen Dill-Riaz will give a master class that is open to all at 1pm in Andorra. The Apollo Award winner Marita Hällfors will conduct a seminar in Dubrovnik from 4pm elaborating on, among other things, the collaboration between a cinematographer and the director while filming.

Meet the Makers I in Bio Rex Lounge at 7pm provides an opportunity for informal discussions with the filmmakers present. THE BORDER FENCE examines a current topic: how, rather than building fences, humanity and human encounters work best. The late screening at Maxim 1 OUT consists of material shot by LGBT youths coming out to their families. The festival reruns will be announced in the evening so stay tuned!
