Efterklang and Andreas Koefoed are inviting people to host their own screenings of The Ghost of Piramida from February 8th until March 24th.
The film follows Efterklang on their 9-day audio expedition to the ghost town Piramida, located just a thousand kilometers from the North Pole and home to more polar bears than people. Accompanied by their taciturn and indifferent Russian polar bear guard, the group goes on an audio 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. During the expedition Efterklang collected over a thousand sound recordings for the album ‘Piramida’ (2012, 4AD), later written and recorded in Berlin.
The screenings follow a very simple set of rules. Any person can apply to host a screening; provided entry is free and it is an open event (as capacity permits). The screenings can take place at a home, at a café, in a school auditorium - basically, anywhere.
