DokuFest today announced opening and closing film for its 20th, jubilee edition, taking place

from 6 to 14 of August in Prizren, Kosovo.

The Witches of the Orient by French filmmaker Julien Faraut is set to open the festival on Friday, August 6, at the Lumbardhi Open Air cinema and following the opening ceremony.

In this stranger-than-fiction chapter of sports history we meet a Japanese women’s volleyball team that was recruited from factory workers to become national heroes in the 60s and their road to winning the gold medal at the 1964 Tokyo Summer Olympics.

Festival will close with the screening of Spike Lee’s latest film David Byrne’s American Utopia, a recording of a Broadway show with the same name. A rare concert film that packs in brilliant music, incredible visuals, a vital political message and jokes, it feels as if Spike Lee has reinvented a legendary Stop Making Sense.
