DOKU.ARTS at Zeughauskino
After three years as a guest at the Filmmuseum Amsterdam, we are very glad to announce the return of DOKU.ARTS to Berlin in 2012.
Under the title, "Process and Memory", DOKU.ARTS presents a unique film series in Europe from September 19 to October 14, 2012. In 30 documentaries, the creative process of film directors, visual artists, dancers, musicians and architects comes to life.
The DOKU.ARTS program is selected to represent the diversity of the documentary genre and the range of experimental approaches of contemporary filmmakers. From the long-term observation, the compilation film, to the essay and homage, DOKU.ARTS presents the richness of contemporary documentary.
One of the highlights this year is the series of Brazilian films on art, which DOKU.ARTS presents in collaboration with the Instituto Moreira Salles in Rio de Janeiro. The complete program includes 17 German and 10 Berlin premieres.
From 4 - 10 May DOKU.ARTS was guest at the Instituto Moreira Salles in Rio de Janeiro. In fall 2012 DOKU.ARTS will present a focus with Brazilian films on art in collaboration with IMS in Berlin. Instituto Moreira Salles (IMS) is a Brazilian nonprofit cultural institution that hosts cultural activities in various areas, such as photography, music, cinema and literature. The IMS was founded in 1992 and has cultural centers in the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Since its foundation, the IMS has established itself as a major Brazilian center for cultural preservation and documentation, maintaining a permanent collection of the highest order in Brazilian photography, literature and music. The collection includes about 550,000 photos, 100,000 songs, a library with 400,000 items and an art gallery with over 3,000 works. The director of the IMS is the documentary filmmaker João Moreira Salles, the brother of the filmmaker Walter Salles.
