Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen: Music is a Monster

Jytte Rex, Denmark, 2007

68 min.DK/DocumentaryPortrait films

In this portrait film by Jytte Rex the composer Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen describes music ¿ good-humouredly but also seriously ¿ as an omnivorous monster, a demon that controls him. The film refers back to Gudmundsen-Holmgreen's first source of inspiration, the Irish-French dramatist Samuel Beckett, whose linguistic universe he has translated into music. The film culminates with a Hans Christian Andersen suite, Moving Still, which he has written for the world-famous string ensemble The Kronos Quartet, where Gudmundsen-Holmgreen for example gives Andersen's song In Denmark I was Born an Arabic adaptation as a tribute to our new fellow-citizens.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
