DOK Leipzig at the
The Bachfest Leipzig is set to begin on 10th June and this year's theme is "Secrets of Harmony". For the second time we will be presenting a real cinematic gem from the DOK Leipzig back catalogue during the BACHmosphäre (10th – 12th June), a film that impresses not only with its powerful images but also with its remarkable use of music. "Vivan Las Antipodas" by Victor Kossakovsky delighted Leipzig audiences back in 2011 and will now be presented on the big screen in an open-air showing on 11th June at 3pm.
In this visually stunning documentary film, Victor Kossakovsky tackles the question of what would happen if one were to dig one's way through the centre of the earth to come out on the other side. To that end Kossakovsky explored four pairs of geographically opposed dry-land locations: in Argentina and China, Russia and Chile, the USA and Botswana, as well as Spain and New Zealand.
The Bachfest Leipzig runs from 10th to 19th June 2016.
