Tempo 2019

This is the program from Tempo documentary festival 2019, the full program for Tempo 2-8 march 2020 will be released on 5th February.

Welcome to Sweden’s biggest documentary festival! This years edition is the 20th (!) in the history of the festival and will take place in Stockholm, 4th-10th of March. The theme for Tempo this year is Heritage. During the festival we’ll look into heritage as a phenomena and it’s many aspects: socially, economically, nationally, politically and biologically. The documentary way of telling a story is in a way like the writing of a testament. Why are we trying to reproduce reality if not to create a legacy for us?
