CULTURE POP
POPKULTUR
The POP CULTURE slot is devoted to the protagonists of popular and mass culture from the
1960s to the present day. Music, cinema, fashion, comics, bestsellers, youth culture and Internet
culture all have their place here. Themes relating to the avant-garde or subcultures are only
picked up if they are a phenomenon of mass culture.
This is a highly informative and entertaining slot. It is emotional and provocative, and identifies
with its viewers. The documentaries analyse, provide context and decode mainstream
phenomena. There is an element of surprise, with new aspects revealed and unexpected angles
adopted. When tackling subcultures, the documentary will arouse curiosity in an unfamiliar issue
by pursuing a narrative that is as catchy and comprehensible as possible.
The slot definitely welcomes portraits of figures in pop culture and character-driven films, with a
preference for stand-alones.
The slot is part of the annual special season “Summer of” (six documentaries).
