Im Zeichen des Widerstands_COVER

"Signs of Resistance"

The Goethe-Institut presents: "Im Zeichen des Widerstands" (Signs of Resistance), a film series with 14 documentaries from four decades about civil society engagement, protest movements, migration, memory culture and environmental issues.

The films gathered here not only show very different facets of documentary filmmaking in their examination of the topics described, but also provide a good insight into the development of documentary filmmaking in Germany.

The series was curated by Dr. Kay Hoffmann, Director of Studies in Science at the Haus des Dokumentarfilms in Stuttgart on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of AG DOK 2020. It is a cooperation between the Goethe-Institut and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Dokumentarfilm (AG DOK).
