“Captain Yngvar Kjelstrup observes the German schoolship Pamir off the Christian Radich’s starboard side, on Jan. 17, 1957.”

Kicking off this German junket, Gitsch will introduce two screenings on successive nights as open-air events at the European Hansemuseum in Lubeck’s Old City, on Nov. 3 & 4. These unique presentations will be in the museum’s harbor front plaza where the film will be projected onto three obelisks encircling the this one-time prison yard, as a part of the 58th Nordic Film Days Lubeck event. The obelisks will separate the picture, a combined triptych, back into three parts segmented by narrow views of the Trave River and the old harbor just beyond each obelisk. Festival Managing Director, Christian Modersbach, describes this presentation as “an installation dialoguing with the architecture, city and landscape”. Adding to the fun, a sea-faring shanty choir, Möwenshiet, will accompany the screening with songs from their own songbook.

Lubeck is a perfect city in which to screen this motion picture. The picture’s real-life narrative of the Norwegian sailing school ship Christian Radich, in it’s 1957 Atlantic crossing, meeting up mid-ocean with the German sail training vessel, the Pamir, which was to tragically sink during Hurricane Carrie a few weeks later, is familiar to Lubeck audiences for two reasons. Firstly, the damaged remains of a recovered lifeboat which held a fortunate few Pamir survivors afloat for days after the disaster, is on exhibit in a memorial within St. Jakobs Church in the city. There it serves as a “National Memorial for Civilian Shipping”. And, a “sister ship” to the Pamir, and similar 4-masted barque, the Passat, is moored as a museum ship in the city’s Baltic seaside environ, Travemünde. The Passat was decommissioned and retired from sailing two years after the Pamir’s sinking, and just a year after “Windjammer” played to full houses in it’s original German theatrical engagements.

On Saturday, November 5, Gitsch will introduce the motion picture on behalf of the Kinemathek Hamburg in their Metropolis Kino theater. Hamburg is the home of the Blohm & Voss GmbH the 139-year-old shipbuilder of both the Pamir and Passat. “WINDJAMMER: THE VOYAGE OF THE CHRISTIAN RADICH” previously played the Kinemathek at their previous Savoy Kino venue in 2010. It now returns to Hamburg for an encore show. Hamburg Kinemathek Kino (in German)
