During the festival, Les Ateliers offer a RETROSPECTIVE and a MASTERCLASS:
PHILIPP SCHEFFNER or the exploration of the folds of history.
A unique voice in contemporary German documentary filmmaking, Scheffner questions, throughout his work, the construction of 'truths', whether these are media-based (Day of the Sparrow, Havarie), legal (Revision), historical or anthropological (The Halfmoon Files). Often starting from news items, his work puts his subjects into perspective in order to examine how they are reported to us. His filmmaking is also marked by a profoundly human process in which the protagonists are approached as equals...
The Visions du Réel Masterclass will be given as a duo, with the German writer and filmmaker Merle Kröger, who, with Philip Scheffner, co-founded the pong production platform in Berlin. The Masterclass Philip Scheffner and Merle Kröger will be held on Thursday 19 April 2018, at 10:00. The screening dates of their documentaries can be found here.
A Selection of about 400 creative documentary films from 2017/2018 are available. The Media Library includes all films from the official selection [as mentioned above], as well as more than 150 titles, recommended by professionals, for accredited professionals only, and including following
