dok.incubator traces at Sundance Film Festival

dok.incubator is delighted to announce another 3 films developed in dok.incubator workshop are now competing in the World Cinema Documentary Competition at Sundance Film Festival! In the last 7 years of the workshop 9 films have already been selected for Sundance.

World Cinema Documentary Competition

An intimate portrait “The Disappearance of My Mother” by Beniamo Barrese (IT), where 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 an unexpected collaboration and confrontation with the camera’s gaze .

 

“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 buried in the middle of the Guajira desert 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. Like a great Greek tragedy, the film witnesses their rise and fall and the tragically polarized nation that remains.  

Moreover, we are happy to congratulate also another three films, competing this year at Sundance, made by dok.incubator ex-participants and tutors!

The Magic Life of V.” by Tonislav Hristov and “Advocate”, edited by Yael Bitton compete in the World Cinema Documentary Competition and Nanfu Wang’s “One Child Nation” has been selected for the U.S. Documentary Competition.
