DOK Leipzig has announced the selection for its 18th DOK Co-Pro Market, with 34 documentary projects from 32 countries picked out of 262 submissions. The event will take place from 17-18 October during the festival.
Some of the producers or directors invited to the DOK Co-Pro Market have already shown films at the festival in the past, including Gesa Hollerbach (All For the Countryside), who arrives with her project Superposition, Bálint Révész (Granny Project) with Voice/Over, Jasmila Žbanić (One Day in Sarajevo [+leggi anche:

The presence of Georgian projects is notable, with three films taking part in the market: Kartli by Tamar Kalandadze and Julien Pebrel, The Mud Princess by Dea Tcholokava and Boxes From Georgia by Gvantsa Meparishvili, in which the director accompanies volunteers at a humanitarian aid collection centre in Tbilisi that sends vital goods to Ukrainians. Meanwhile, in A Bit of a Stranger, Ukrainian director Svitlana Lishchynska films her Russian-speaking family for over a year during Russia's attacks on their homeland.
Other projects deal with global topics. In The Culprits, Spain's Marta Duran films young women discussing their decision to have an abortion as teenagers; Finnish filmmakers Liinu Grönlund and Okku Nuutilainen's In a Box is about the commitment of researchers and private citizens to save endangered frogs, reptiles and fish species; and in the French production Ojos de Agua, Free the Waters of Chile, co-directors Marion Esnault and Marcelo Lara follow two indigenous Chileans in their struggle to de-privatise water.
In terms of artistic approaches, several projects are based on archive materials, including Aylaa Musa's Becoming Omer Khairy, Nayibe Tavares-Abel's Colosal and Sára Timár's Under the Dance Floor.
Four projects that the DOK Industry Team scouted at partner training initiatives and film markets are also part of the selection: Alexander Belinski and Agne Dovydaityte's Baltic UXO (East Doc Platform), Arjun Talwar's A Hole in the Wall (Doc Lab Poland Docs to Start), Arnold Aganze's Kange (Durban FilmMart) and In the Light of Darkness (Docs by the Sea). A fifth project will be selected at the BDC Discoveries Workshop in late September.
Finally, the first series project ever to take part in the market is The Sharp End of a Knife by Godisamang Khunou, which features inmates of a women's prison in Johannesburg who are serving life sentences after defending themselves from their violent husbands.
