The Documentary Week is the exhibition space of DocMontevideo.
The 2018 edition presents 18 films with the presence of its directors between July 20 and 26.

One more year, the Documentary Week brings unprecedented programming in the country with the best of the current Latin American documentary. An opportunity to learn about the most recent regional production, which is increasingly strong on the international scene.

With a strong author component, the selection of this edition is marked by a majority of films directed by women (eleven), as well as several raw operas of emerging regional talent (nine) that is breaking into festivals around the world. Also highlighted in the program is a high presence of Brazilian films, which responds to the great growth – in quantity and quality – of documentary production in the neighboring country; and two Uruguayan pre-premieres. It is a diverse program that brings urgent films about regional socio-political contexts, sensitive stories that delve into family and human bonds; and stories that explore and resignify the past.

This year, in addition, 3 guest films are presented: “Becoming Animal” and “Picture of Light” by Peter Mettler, two works that challenge nature and “Alberto García Alix, The Shadow Line”, a film that portrays one of the most outstanding contemporary portrait photographers.
