Following its worldwide premiere in November, Efterklang have confirmed details of an exclusive UK screening of 'The Ghost Of Piramida', a film by Danish director Andreas Koefoed, documenting the Danish trio's visit to the former Russian mining town.
Accompanied by their taciturn Russian polar bear guard, the group goes on a treasure hunt in the empty buildings of the abandoned town, while the narrator, former Piramida citizen Alexander, takes us back to a bygone era, when Piramida flourished and the immigrant Russian miners and their families lived in a Soviet parallel society far from the brutal reality of their homeland.
Nominated in the Best Music Documentary category at IDFA and CPH:DOX 2012, 'The Ghost Of Piramida' will be screened at the intimate Aubin Cinema, London, on Sunday 6th January 2013 at 8.45pm, followed by a Q&A with Andreas Koefoed and members of Efterklang. The 45-seat cinema will also host a private invite-only screening and Q&A on Saturday 5th January.
