WE ARE SOUND (Movie, german with english subtitel) by Ludwig Valenta – Open Air Cinema (Wednesday 25.July 2018 – around 22:30)
The movie “We are Sound” will be shown to all of the participans of the 4-days-gathering (for free). It’s an awarded documentation movie, made by the Austrian Movie Maker Ludvig Valenta who will be at the event as well. Some of the scenes are taken at the GRIASDI 2017 and also some protagonist are from the Handpan community. And yes, its about sound and Pantams as well.
We live in a world where the people can’t see any more the sense of the predominant value system „Higher, faster stronger“ alone. The humans in the industrialized countries suffer – despite of material prosperity – from diseases like burn-out, depression, drug-addiction etc. Why? Because of the missing connection to ourselves – we have forgotten our own melody.To get by on sound every single human being can vibrate in harmony again. How do i sound? And how does the world sound?
