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.
