In Competition

An investigative portrait of the master of cinematic melodrama, Douglas Sirk. His life was the ultimate melodrama, from which all his films were inspired. Through the testimonies of those closest to him and the unpublished accounts in his wife’s diary, we get closer to this man surrounded by mystery. We discover his world and his story, marked by hope and disillusionment, by death and, of course, by love.
