About the film:

The musician Hayden Chisholm, a New Zealander with Scottish ancestors, travels through Germany in search of a kind of music that seems to have been long forgotten by the Germans – real folk music. The road movie takes Hayden from Cologne to Bavaria, Vogtland and the Ore Mountains, to the Buchenwald memorial and to Flensburg. Hayden Chisholm and the two filmmakers discover a lively, true-to-life, unique and productive music scene, where anything stuffy and lifeless is foreign. Real folk music still exists, far removed from the trash and kitsch that is disseminated regularly on German television shows and musical request programmes.









ABOUT GERMAN MOVIE DAY:
German Movie Day is a film programme organised by the Mediathek at Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad that brings you day-time movies once a month from Germany. If you are a German student, an enthusiast of German culture or simply like watching matinees – this is the show for you! The themes of the films vary based on the cultural theme of the month, and are mostly light-hearted and cultural.​
