The start of Pop-Kultur gets Atomic! As you should know by now Scottish post-rock heavyweights MOGWAI are opening Pop-Kultur with a unique film concert experience as they bring their soundtrack for the BBC documentary ‘Storyville – Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise’ to live. Find more information right here and just in case you aren’t convinced yet, here are a few special greeting words by guiatrist Barry Burns:
Dear visitors to Pop-Kultur-Berlin 2016 and Admiralspalast.
Mogwai are honoured to be invited to play our live soundtrack along to a cinematic screening of Mark Cousins’ BBC commissioned film “Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise”.
The film recounts the experiences of the nuclear dawn, the A-Bomb, the following Cold War, nuclear power disasters, the moments of hope, the good we could use (and have done) with the technology, and also the mass protests against nuclear energy and weapons which are still highly relevant today. We feel this is a film not to be missed and – within a live setting – feels more powerful than even we had hoped.
We look forward to being a part of the festival and we hope that you, like us, learn something more about a subject that continues to loom over us.
