Commuters and travellers at Frankfurt's main station were astonished on Monday afternoon when the entrance hall was suddenly filled with choir songs from Tanzania. The reason was a performance by singers from the Tanzanian Kanaani Youth Choir, who were guests in Frankfurt to present the documentary film "Sing it Loud - Luther's Heirs in Tanzania" here on Sunday together with the Frankfurt filmmaker Julia Irene Peters and her co-director Jutta Feit. The youth choir is one of three choirs portrayed in the film.
After a successful premiere at the sold-out CINEMA on Sunday evening, the director and the young choir members wanted to take their joint work out into the city in an unusual way, of course also to draw attention to the film's release on Thursday. A flashmob-style performance was the perfect way to reach as many people as possible. And indeed, a steadily growing crowd quickly formed around the choir, stopping their daily hectic for a moment to listen to the engaging and cheerful sounds. A nice little change from the usual hustle and bustle of the main station, implemented in cooperation with the Bahnhofsmission.
About the film: SING IT LOUD - LUTHER'S HERITAGE IN TANSANIA is an electrifying music documentary, shot in the beautiful landscape of Tanzania, in remote villages and the pulsating big city of Arusha. Choir music is pop music there, provides social cohesion among the people and offers personal development. On the occasion of a choir competition all choirs have to perform an own composition and sing an old German chorale. Three choirs begin rehearsals.
The documentary takes viewers on an emotional journey and tells of music, faith and joie de vivre. A stirring visual and aural feast, with stunning images of the Tanzanian landscape, touching family stories and surprising insights into Tanzanian life.
Official theatrical release of the film is May 18, 2017 distributed by JIP Filmproduktion.
