Louisiana, the Museum of Modern Art, a wonderful place at the Øresund, the strait between the Northern part of Zealand and Southern Sweden, one hour by train from Copenhagen, there are always interesting exhibitions, it is a place for relaxing and reflecting – has established a collaboration with the cph:dox festival. For four weeks (19 films, spread out on 11 days) screenings take place on some weekdays and in the weekends with free entrance if you have bought a ticket for the Museum, that right now – among others – have an exhibition of Asger Jorn and Jackson-Pollock. To be precise, I continue in Danish by quoting from the site of the museum – what a great initiative this collaboration is, I just want to add:

Louisiana: DOX (er et) intenst dokumentar-filmprogram i museets koncertsal i 11 dage mellem 7. – 26. Januar.

Store filmoplevelser venter, når Louisiana i januar viser nogle af de bedste og mest nyskabende dokumentar-film fra CPH:DOX-festivalen, som fandt sted i København i november 2013. I samarbejde med CPH:DOX har Louisiana udvalgt 19 dokumentarfilm, som museet viser 11 dage i januar, både hverdage og weekends.

LOUISIANA:DOX starter tirsdag den 7. januar med visningen af to dokumentarfilm, der begge har fokus på den kinesiske kunstner Ai Weiwei og hans situation. Den ene er Andreas Johnsens meget roste film Ai Weiwei – The Fake Case, den anden er filmen Stay Home! – en ny stærkt systemkritisk dokumentarfilm instrueret af Ai Weiwei selv.

Blandt de mange andre prisvindende dokumentarfilm, som vises i forbindelse med LOUISIANA:DOX, kan nævnes den enestående Manakamana, som er filmet i en svævebane i Nepal, Bloody Beans, en vild film om Algiers historiske kamp for uafhængighed, Michael H: Profession Director (PHOTO), et portræt af den østrigske filminstruktør Michael Haneke, samt Everyday Rebellion, som vandt Publikumsprisen.
