Tempo documentary festival

Fur Hats, car crashes and cartridge cases in the Tempo Documentary Festival program

The program for the 18th edition of Tempo Documentary Festival has been released in its entirety on February 8 at. Many of the films will premiere in Sweden, including Dream Empire by David Borenstein, The Man Who Saw Too Much by Trisha Ziff and The Land of the Enlightened by Pieter-Jan De Puec. These directors are some of the international guests. Hot radio documentaries Sound Sauna in Finland Institute, photo exhibition, talks and a record number of seminars and more are also part of the festival.

As the main theme of this year’s festival is the (un) truth, gives room for a wide range of documentary storytelling – everything from classic portraits movies to grand tableaux and hybrids are represented.

This year’s poster image is from the documentary Dream Empire by David Borenstein. The film’s main character is 24-year-old Yana, who runs a business in order to attract people to move to newly built cities in China, cities with huge complex of skyscrapers and shopping malls. To make the apartments more attractive to domestic potential buyers, she hires people born outside China to participate in the sale. But what is true, what is actually untrue in their performances – and does it really matter?
