World Film Festival goes to Schilling Music festival July 01, 2013

World Film festival, celebrating its 10th anniversary, has decided to go on a trip in Estonia. Every spring for the past 10 years filmmakers have come to Tartu from many different places and taken their audiences on a trip around the world through their films. This summer Worldfilm will start its own tour, and the first stop is Kilingi-Nõmme and the Schilling music festival.

A selection of films screened in Worldfilm during the last 5 years will be shown on July 6th and 7th in the Kilingi-Nõmme postal house. The topics of the films vary from an anthropological thriller set in Papua New-Guinea to the warm and hot-tempered friendship of people living in the Võrumaa countryside, and from the village life of Germany and Ukraine to the self-forgetful musical expressions on the island of Zanzibar. The film gest in Kilingi-Nõmme will end with a wonderful film about the Golden Temple in Amritsar, where hundreds of volunteers prepare 50 000 free meals every day.

In the middle of German province the tireless priest Sri Paskaran built the biggest Tamil Hindu temple in Europe. The film accompanies the priest in his busy life and also follows his arrangements to the annual temple festival expecting 20.000 believers. In the neighbourhood, the locals cultivate their own traditions. Irene sells fast-food sausages in the local snack-bar and meanwhile farmer Exsternbrink  has got a holy cow in his barn. An encounter and coexistence of two worlds.

At sunset in the streets of the old town, the musical clubs of Zanzibar buzz with the joyful sounds of Taarab, the music of Zanzibar, whose style reflects two millenniums of cultural exchange and the island's location at the crossroads of the spice route. Vehicle of cultural identity and living tradition, the performance of Taarab is intrinsically linked to both the ceremonial and everyday life of the island. Its gentle rhythms accompany the listener on every step of his road, from the most solemn to the most blissful moments.
