Kim Longinotto Coming to ZagrebDox

unnamedBritish documentarist Kim Longinotto, whose films have given a voice to the oppressed, marginalised and abused women all over the world for more than 40 years, will be the special guest of the 11th edition of the International Documentary Film Festival – ZagrebDox, which will take place from 22 February to 1 March 2015 at Cineplexx Kaptol Centre in the Croatian capital…

One of the most significant documentary filmmakers today, the master of portraits and powerful female stories, Longinotto is the winner of this year’s My Generation Award, presented by ZagrebDox director Nenad Puhovski. The 11th festival programme features two of her films, and in the ZagrebDox Pro section Longinotto will hold a masterclass.

Only a few weeks after the world premiere in Sundance Film Festival competition, ZagrebDox’s international competition screens Longinotto’s latest film Dreamcatcher for which she was awarded with World Cinema Documentary Directing Award.
Dreamcatcher is a colourful portrayal of a former Chicago-based prostitute Brenda Myers-Powell, following her attempts to use her experience to help young girls and women off the streets, trapped in a vicious circle of violence and exploitation.

The Masters of Dox section screens Love Is All: 100 Years of Love and Courtship, exploring love and courtship on film in the 20th century. The mentioned films are to screen in a new special programme ZagrebDoXXL, including a double feature and a moderated Q&A Session with the director and her long-time associate, editor Ollie Huddleston.
