WERNER HERZOG | MAÎTRE DU RÉEL
Werner Herzog is in town! The filmmaker will be awarded with the Sesterce d'or Prix Raiffeisen Maître du Réel on Monday evening. And Tuesday afternoon, he will give a Masterclass in discussion with Lionel Baier, Head of the Film Department at ECAL and filmmaker, and Emilie Bujès, Artistic Director of Visions du Réel, while a selection of his films is part of the Festival’s programme. Welcome in Nyon!
A non-competitive section that aims to reveal a panorama of current documentary practices.
WHERE WE BELONG gives the floor to children with parents who separated, KHARTOUM OFFSIDE or the passion of feminine football in Sudan, in a all-male world ruled by Sharia law, GREAT EXPECTATIONS follows the Aviron Bayonnais rugby team who is having a streak, HONEYLAND is a magnificent portrait of an extraordinary woman, TRANSNISTRA follows a group of teenagers in a region where the shadow of Soviet legacy looms large, whereas high school students question the political discourses of the 20th century in OUR DEFEATS. And in A DOG CALLED MONEY, the famous British singer-songwriter PJ Harvey seeks out inspiration in Afghanistan, Kosovo and Washington.
