SEE THE SOUND, the film festival of SoundTrack_Cologne, is cancelled due to the current situation regarding the corona virus. At least parts of the film programme will - as far as possible - be postponed to summer and then shown parallel to the congress SoundTrack_Cologne from October 14th – 17th, 2020.
"The statements made by the politicians in recent days, as well as the letters from the City of Cologne which led to the cancellation of the parallel running c/o pop, contain clear indications that it is unlikely that the cinemas will open from April 19th and that the ban on events will remain in place beyond our festival period. Therefore, with a heavy heart and in consultation with our sponsors, we have decided today to cancel SEE THE SOUND as well. It is very sad, because a great programme was planned, which could not be more up-to-date: The feature film LIVE by Lisa Charlotte Friedrich, for example, anticipates a future in which every gathering and especially no concerts are allowed. We hope that in August it will be possible again to let the audience experience our selection of feature and documentary films during a joint visit to the cinema or festival", says festival director Michael P. Aust.

The machines make a lot of noise and the famous main character: remains silent. In Charlie Chaplin's masterpiece "Modern Times", the creator still refuses to give his "Tramp" the floor and instead relies on gestures and facial expressions. The WDR Funkhausorchester provides live melodies to match the screen spectacle and colors the black and white images with colorful orchestra colors.Detail
