Thirty Minutes of Silence (Estonia, Finland, Slovakia, Lapland)

Thirty Minutes of Silence (Estonia, Finland, Slovakia, Lapland)
Director/Producer: Ove Musting

"A famous conductor returns to his homeland after a 30-year exile to conduct a local symphony orchestra on his 50th anniversary. But from now on, the indebted orchestra will be sponsored by a railway company which demands that train sounds be incorporated into the symphony."

In conjunction with the EU Film Showcase (November 8 – 20) at the AFI Silver, the Goethe-Institut presents a true European collaboration in film. Eight multinational European film teams explore and celebrate the cultural diversity of the new Europe.
