Ghosts of Piramida

Jun 02, 2013

(Andreas Koefoed, 2012, Denmark, Blu-ray, 90 min)

Seattle premiere!

In the most thoughtful and affecting music documentary of the year, Danish band Efterklang travels to an abandoned Russian town where, decades earlier, miners and their families managed to live outside the rules and reality of a Soviet authority. If you could call one place a natural host for a trio of musicians, then Piramida—a town of empty buildings waiting to be filled with music—might just be it. Searching for nothing more than artistic inspiration, the musicians discover a way to bring this town’s ghost story into the here and now with their newest album.
