Since this week, climate activists in Lützerath (Nordrhein-Westfalen; English translation: North Rhine-Westphalia) in Germany have been trying to prevent the final demolition of the village by RWE for the Rhenish open-cast lignite mine Garzweiler. UCM.ONE is thematising the climate protests in the cinema with the documentary “Barricade”. The film is by the world-award winning Cologne…
The label NONFY Documentaries (short: NONFY) was founded in 2018 by UCM.ONE. The name contains the words “no” and “fiction“, as documentary films, especially in the English-speaking world, are also called “non-fiction movies” as distinct from feature films (“fiction movies“). The term documentary was first used in 1926 by John Gierson.
John Gierson defined this then new genre as “the creative treatment of reality“. What did he mean by that? In principle, a documentary always gives the viewer the expectation of being authentic and merely showing facts. A documentary film can never be a mere depiction of reality, since every documentary film is made through the eyes of the producers, the camera work and choice of filmed materials and the editing of the film.
Therefore, the creators of a documentary film label have the special task of selecting not only qualitative aspects but also documentary films that address relevant topics, are interesting, stimulate thoughtful thinking or get to the bottom of the challenges of our time. Exciting…..
The following documentary films were previously published on the film label NONFY Documentaries:
