War is raging in Ukraine. The dokumentarfilmwoche hamburg is part of an international community of cultural workers, and they are convinced that solidarity and debate in an open society are more than just a symbolic sign against tanks, bombs and a military understanding of politics. Even if there is no alternative to self-defence by the people of Ukraine, the current debates about rearmament are part of the problem and never the solution! In view of the concrete threat to human life posed by this war, this may seem insufficient. Nevertheless: together with the guests and the audience, the team of  dokumentarfilmwoche hamburg would like to make a contribution to continue working for a world without dictatorships, war, exploitation and displacement.
Most of the filmmakers of the documentaries in the programm will be present at the festival, and in anticipation of an eventful four and a half days of the 19th festival edition, they release you into the depths of the program catalogue with a quote from Lars von Trier: "Be prepared to take the Good with the Evil!"
