Wunder der Schopfung screening


Tuesday 29 November (20.20), GFT Cinema 1

Acclaimed electronica duo Herschel 36 present their brand new electronica/acoustic soundscape score commissioned by HippFest for this groundbreaking silent documentary. An extraordinary and unique document of human knowledge about the world and the universe in the 1920s, literally translated as ‘Wonder of Creation’.

Fifteen special effects experts and nine cameramen were involved in the production of this beautifully tinted and toned film which combines documentary scenes, historical documents, fiction elements, animation scenes and educational impact.

“The duo’s moody, ambient score struck just the right balance between awe and alienation” ***** The Scotsman
