Rage – announcing the theme programme for Rokumentti Festival!

Whoopee! The fifteenth Rokumentti Rock Film Festival is held in November, and the theme this year is called Rage. 

Rage takes many forms: social media rage, road rage, and so on. It seems that raging is, well, all the rage at the moment, and the channels for expressing aggression are also more diverse than ever. Justified rage has been a positive force when fighting injustice in society, but in the wrong hands rage can become a frightening weapon. 

The theme programme explores the many aspects of rage. Check out the theme programme here. The full programme will be published in October. Tickets for screenings will be on sale on Monday, October 28.

Theme documentary films:

Omar Shargawi: Western Arabs

Reetta Huhtanen: Aatos ja Amine

Robert Bahar, Almudena Carracedo: The Silence of Others

Penny Lane: Hail Satan?

Judith Helfand: Cooked: Survival by Zip Code
