Arminius x IFFR: 9 Songs

Music and film bring people together, which is an important mission for both IFFR and Debatpodium Arminius. From May to October we will work together on a program that allows you to see, discuss and experience the powerful synergies between music and film in the beautiful surroundings of Arminius.

Our series offers a journey into new sonic worlds: from the unknown female pioneers of electronic music, to a bittersweet biopic about enigmatic Texan singer Blaze Foley, and London's alt-rock scene of the early 2000s. Discover unexpected sounds and groundbreaking musicians, loud and on the big screen.

About 9 Songs (Michael Winterbottom, 2004)

The complete immersion of British filmmaker Michael Winterbottom (Wonderland, 24 Hour Party People, The Trip) in sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll earned him little more than controversy in the tabloid magazines upon the release of 9 Songs. but over the years appreciation for the film has slowly grown. Matt, an English glaciologist, and Lisa, an American student, meet at a Black Rebel Motorcycle performance at the Brixton Academy in London. En route to Antarctica, Matt reflects on the compelling sexual relationship that followed, reliving the pair's uninhibited physical contact interspersed with nine songs from live concerts. Featuring performances from Elbow, Primal Scream, The Dandy Warhols, Super Furry Animals and Franz Ferdinand, 9 Songs pays tribute to the energy of the early 2000s alternative rock scene. The film offers a playful take on nostalgia, filmed in handheld digital: a look back at a bygone era and a love that was never meant to last.
