Debate | Cinema & Propaganda
Is the cinéma du réel a propaganda and war tool or a medium bringing people together? This question will be discussed between Ivo Kummer (Head of Film at the Federal Office of Culture), Franziska Reck (Reck Films), Lionel Baier (filmmaker), Giona A. Nazzaro (member of the Visions du Réel selection committee) and moderated by Beat Glur (Visions du Réel’s press officer).
