Carte Blanche to Dimitri Eipides to select 10 documentaries



Renowned Greek festival programmer Dimitri Eipides, the man who established the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival in 1999 and directed it ever since until 2016, is given a carte blanche at the 19th Thessaloniki Documentary Festival to select
10 documentaries that will be screened in this year's event.


The festival thus honours a special person that has been devoted to cinema for many decades; “a godfather of interesting cinema”, as the director Jim Jarmusch put it during his attendance at the 54th TIFF. 


Dimitri Eipides selected 10 documentaries of recent production (2005-2013) that have been presented in previous festival editions. These films touch upon various aspects of human reality, resembling a huge puzzle that brings together images of our world, then and now.


The films:


Blockade, Sergei Loznitsa, Russia, 2005, 52’

Kinbaku - Art of Bondage, Jouni Hokkanen, Finland, 2009, 29’

Music Partisans, Miroslaw Dembinski, Poland, 2007, 53’

My Sweet Canary, Roy Sher, Israel-France-Greece, 2011, 89’

Steam of Life, Mika Hotakainen & Joonas Berghall, Finland-Sweden, 2010, 84’

The Imposter, Bart Layton, UK-Spain-USA, 2011, 91’

The Last Days of Shishmaref, Jan Louter, Netherlands, 2008, 93’

The Mother, Antoine Cattin & Pavel Kostomarov, Switzerland-France-Russia, 2007, 80’

The World According To Ion B., Alexander Nanau, Romania, 2009, 61’

Where Is My Son?, Chaimin Ahn, South Korea, 2013, 52’



The 19th TDF is financed by the European Union - European Regional Development Fund under the ROP of Central Macedonia 2014-2020.
