»Soundbreaker« / Documentary on Kimmo Pohjonen
»Soundbreaker« is an eighty-six minute music documentary film about Finnish accordion player Kimmo Pohjonen. A deeper understanding of the inner struggle of this exceptional artist is conveyed through breathtaking images, sparse words, interviews, photos, music, video and archive material from Pohjonen’s thirty-five year career in music. Kimmo Pohjonen can be heard in his programme »Ultra Organ« on 24 February in the Elbphilharmonie Grand Hall.
The Elbphilharmonie’s supporting programme offers a variety of different angles on the music performed – either to complement the concert itself, or as an experience in its own right. As a rule, the Elbphilharmonie+ events are interdisciplinary in nature: exhibitions, talks to accompany a particular concert or events featuring flamenco dancing or scat singing. They take place in the Elbphilharmonie itself in some cases, as well as in museums, libraries and local culture centres.
The Abaton Kino opened its doors in 1970 and is located in the immediate vicinity of the University of Hamburg. It is regarded as one of Germany’s first arthouse movie theatres, alongside Bremen’s Cinema Ostertor. Today, the cinema shows mostly current independent films, usually in original language with subtitles, as well as classics, documentaries and thematic series.
