I love Munich, I love documentary films, so it follows that I’m pretty excited about the DOK.fest, Munich’s annual international documentary film festival*. Having said this, I’ve gone to a couple of showings in years past that were kind of clunkers. So I’m being a little more selective this year, here are the films I’m planning to see:
A chronicle of hip-hop’s early forefathers, by Michael Rappaport (remember him?)
Missed the exhibit at the Haus der Kunst when it was in Munich. Everybody raved and I want to know more.
No German film festival is complete without a Hitler/WWII/Nazi documentary.
An undercover look at the Neo-Nazi rock scene (should be a double feature with the one above).
I’ll see anything by Werner Herzog.
*Although for the life of me, I can’t figure out why this is scheduled in May, right when the weather gets nice, how about November instead?
