Nordische Filmtage Lübeck-Gunda
Gunda, a film by Viktor Kossakovsky

The documentary programme at the 62nd Nordische Filmtage Lübeck depicts the convoluted paths to happiness and surprising insights we gain along the way. The films presented, which sometimes explore all sides of a topic or trauma cover a wide array of topics like ecological sustainability, body image, war, and more.
