21st Thessaloniki Documentary Festival - “Why Look at Animals?” tribute

The countdown for the 21st Thessaloniki Documentary Festival (March 1-10, 2019) begins with the tribute “Why Look at Animals”, dedicated to the special relationship between humans and animals. The tribute is inspired by the same titled essay by the iconic British art critic, author and painter John Berger (1926-2017) and presents a selection of poignant documentaries that explore the various aspects of the interaction between man and animal. 

The Guilty

A police officer who has been denoted and found himself only handling admin work receives an anonymous phone call from a woman who has been kidnapped. Confined to his office chair, he is forced to use others as his eyes and ears, as the magnitude of the crime is slowly uncovered... A fixating thriller that breathes exciting new life into the Scandinavian tradition of this film genre, with its narrative and visual resourcefulness, as well as its chilling penetration of a character’s depths.
