Five non-fiction efforts will screen during the February festival’s 2012 Perspektive Deutsches Kino program – three full-length and two medium-length films.

The program, made up of 13 films, includes This Ain’t California by Marten Persiel, a documentary on skateboarders in 1980s East Germany; and Dichter und Kämpfer (Rhymers and Rivals) from Marion Hütter, on young slam poets from Berlin, Leipzig, Bochum and Stuttgart.
