Efterklang - Efterklang announce UK premiere of 'The Ghost Of Piramida'
Efterklang : Efterklang announce UK premiere of 'The Ghost Of Piramida'
21st December 2012

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.
