The 64th Nordische Filmtage Lübeck festival (Nov. 2-6, 2022) will open on November 2 at 7pm with the Danish documentary “Music for Black Pigeons” by Jørgen Leth and Andreas Koefoed. The festival screening will be the film’s German premiere.
This documentary poses existential questions to influential jazz musicians such as Bill Frisell, Lee Konitz, Midori Takada, and many others. What is it like to play the music, and what does it mean to listen? The filmmakers followed Danish composer and guitarist Jakob Bro for 14 years, as he meets and plays with celebrated and eccentric musicians from a range of generations and nations. Using Bro’s compositions, they explore the musical space – and answer some of the questions that the film poses, in their own poetic, life-affirming, and entertaining ways. The film had its world premiere at this year’s Venice International Film Festival.
Directors Jørgen Leth and Andreas Koefoed, musician Jakob Bro, and producer Emile Hertling Péronard are expected to attend the German premiere of the film in Lübeck.
The entire festival programme will be announced at a press conference on October 12.
