The documentary reflects the work undertaken by the Danish group Efterklang in Piramida, near the North Pole, for the creation of their latest record. The director, Andreas Koefoed, followed the group members on their expedition to capture the sounds of the ghost town Piramida, an old mining settlement that became deserted at the end of the nineteen-nineties. Efterklang’s creative process intertwines with the experiences of Alexander, a one-time inhabitant of Piramida, capable of reconstructing the collective memory of the town through memories and images. The film received an award at Amsterdam’s IDFA festival.
The film will be shown in original version with Spanish subtitles and will begin at 8:30 p.m. Entrance is free until filled to capacity.
On 1st May, as a part of the cycle Sons 13, Efterklang will open the Festival Sinsal 11 with the presentation of their record Piramida in Santiago de Compostela’s Teatro Principal .
