Onsite Film Screening and Discussion: Koppmoll

Location

Seattle, WA 98107
Tel : 206.789.5707

Join us at the Museum for a screening of Koppmoll, a film that negotiates the border between documenting and storytelling. The documentary was shot in the far north of Norway, and it follows writer Damon Falke as he visits a local family whose lives have been touched by change and memories of World War II. While considering his own need for place, Falke is introduced to places and stories that speak of home, family, loss, and a nearly forgotten war. Koppmoll is about the act of turning over one stone and finding a world where lives and landscapes are inseparable, where history is present.

The screening is followed by a discussion with the film’s director Charles M Pepiton, producer Rebekah Wilkins-Pepiton, writer Damon Falke and cinematographer Wes Kline. The panel will be moderated by National Nordic Museum Archivist & Oral History Specialist, Alison DeRiemer.

Cost: Free
