24.9. EISZEIT Live Concerts present:

WE STOOD LIKE KINGS plays KOYAANISQATSI

Crazy life, life in turmoil, life disintegrating, life out of balance, a state of life that calls for another way of living.

USA 1982. Koyaanisqatsi. Or the ambitious meeting between a legendary American movie and the intense, powerful as well as touching and fragile music of Brussels-based post-rock quartet WE STOOD LIKE KINGS, inspired by the likes of Pink Floyd, Chopin and Mogwai. With their previous releases BERLIN 1927(Symphony of a Great City– Walter Ruttmann) and USSR 1926 (A Sixth Part of the World– Dziga Vertov) and after more than 150 concerts in 15 countries, the four young musicians have now become a reference in their field on the European scene. They will present their latest soundtrack USA 1982 in XXX. A mind-blowing experience that appeals to all your senses.

Judith Hornes - piano; Philip Bolten - guitar; Colin Delloye - bass; Mathieu Waterkeyn - drums.

Tickets: €15,- / €10,- | Entrance: 20.00, Start: 20.30.

30.9. Premiere: House without roof with film guests

Guests: Director Soleen Yusef + Cast
Hosted by: Andrea Hohnen (First Steps Programming)

House Without Roof tells the story of the three siblings ALAN, JAN, and LIYA which were born in Iraqi Kurdistan but grew up in Germany. The three want to fulfil their mother's last wish and burry her in their home village next to their father who died in war. During this fraught Kurdish odyssey they are not only confronted by their big Kurdish family which doesn't accept their mother's wish but also by themselves. During the last years the distance between the family members has increased, each lives his own life and when they talk to each other it soon becomes dominated by mutual accusations. At the same time, a terrible conflict is rising in their home country and first noone recognizes the dimensions of this conflict.
