Niederlande 2021 – Director: Oeke Hoogendijk – Admission: 7,50 euros

Karlheinz Stockhausen’s megalomaniac opera cycle LICHT, which he worked on for 26 years, lasts 29 hours – helicopter choreography included! The film examines the lasting impact of the dazzling persona and the musical legacy, which provided an acclaimed blueprint for electronic music. A fascinating exploration of the work and on-going importance of the complex, accomplished artist. Simon Hauck
