Nine feature films and nine short films from 20 different countries will make up the Official Section - The Central Region of the eleventh edition of the Punto de Vista Navarra International Documentary Film Festival.
This year, the official selection illuminates today’s crises, instabilities and political resistance in Europe, United States, Tunisia or Brazil; where the recent past of the trains to Treblinka works as a counterpoint to a radio from another film that reports on extreme right demonstrations in Greece; an official selection in which the way of filming disability and childhood is rethought, where tentative dialogues between apparently opposite cultures are put to the test, where words and images are put to the universal pain of losing a mother, where the drama of the refugees in the Mediterranean is tackled.
Each of the 18 films has been selected for its aesthetic quality, and is thought of as a formal unique and complementary formal contribution to the others, within the field of experimental documentary. The Central Region feeds off films based on reality and contemporary and poetic things. These works are varied in terms of themes and the formal side, but debate how to fight against and deal with the search for a new point of view.
