DocVille, running from 21-29 March this year, features five Dogwoof titles.

The festival takes place in Lueven, Belgium, and focuses on author driven non-fiction cinema. It does so through a variety of guest screenings, masterclasses and contemporary documentaries.

The Dogwoof films in attendance are Lots of Kids, a Monkey and a Castle, The Deminer, Mountain, Generation Wealth, and This Is Congo.

The Lineup

Lots of Kids, a Monkey and a Castle

A charming and rich portrait of eccentric matriarch Julita Salmerón and her family. With hilarious and unexpected turns we discover just how Julita got her three childhood wishes: lots of kids, a monkey, and a castle.

The Deminer

With just a pair of wire cutters, deminer Fakhir disarms thousands of explosive mines across Mosul (Iraq) - a task that could cost him his life but save the lives of thousands.

Mountain

From the director of the BAFTA-nominated Sherpa and narrated by Willem Dafoe, Mountain explores the nature of our modern fascination with mountains in collaboration with one of the greatest chamber orchestras in the world.

Generation Wealth

Generation Wealth is the fruition of a twenty-five-year documentary inquiry into what has been called “the influence of affluence”. In the era when Donald Trump becomes president, Lauren Greenfield's film is a searing exploration of the aspiration for wealth.

This Is Congo

A highly-immersive, unfiltered look into one of the longest conflicts in the world, and the people surviving within it.
