Andreas Koefoed’s The Ghost of Piramida Documentary Released Digitally!

October 1, 2013 by Rasmus

After more than 1000 screenings around the world since November last year THE GHOST OF PIRAMIDA has finally been released digitally.

Andreas Koefoed’s Efterklang film is available for online renting (3,70€) or download (11€) via Vimeo’s new on-demand service.

In The Ghost Of Piramida director Andreas Koefoed follows Efterklang on their 9 day audio expedition to the ghost town Piramida on Spitsbergen, located just a thousand kilometers from the North Pole and home to more polar bears than people.

Accompanied by their taciturn and not visibly impressed Russian polar bear guard, the group goes on a treasure hunt in the empty buildings of the ghost town, while the narrator, the 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.

Efterklang collected over a thousand sound recordings for the album ‘Piramida’ (4AD, Sep 2012) they later wrote and recorded in Berlin.

The music in the film incorporates some of the early sketches, as well as finished songs from the album.
