Akekonkurranse i KorketrekkerenKonkurrenz im Korkenzieher / Toboggan Race at Korketrekkeren

Specials, Norway 1920, 6 Min., silent

This documentary short about toboggan racing in Norway uses an “unchained camera” for a subjective point of view of the wild ride through the twisting channels of snow at Korketrekkeren (“corkscrew”). There are occasional wipe-outs, but everyone escapes unscathed. A wintertime frolic in the homeland of skiing. Screening with live musical accompaniment by music students from Lübeck and La Rochelle.

The Cine Concert project is a cooperation between the Lübeck college of music and art, the Festival La Rochelle Cinéma in Lübeck’s partner city in France, and the Nordische Filmtage Lübeck; sixteen young musicians from Germany and France have jointly composed music to accompany silent films that will be presented at both festivals. The project receives financial support from the Franco-German Youth Office (FGYO).
