Best Documentaries 2011

Posted on 12.13.11

Playing the-best-of list game, here is what I consider as the best documentaries of 2011. This time I have not mentioned the countries of origin as the documentary film language is not bound to borders. Nevertheless, contrary to the American and English 2011 lists, I hope you will appreciate to find films with a multitude of different languages and cultural links. Alphabetical order:

Asif Kapadia: Senna, 106 mins.

Danfung Dennis: Hell and Back Again, 88 mins.

Fernand Melgar: Vol Special, 99 mins.

Pietro Marcello: The Silence of Pelesjan, 52 mins.

Mantas Kvedaravicius: Barzakh, 57 mins. (Photo)

Michael Glawogger: Whore´s Glory, 110 mins.

Patricio Guzman: Nostalgia for the Light, 90 mins.

Shatz & Barash: The Collaborator and his Family, 84 mins.

Viktor Kossakovsky: Vivan las Antipodas, 104 mins.

Wim Wenders: Pina, 100 mins.
