German Cinema at The DANK: FULL METAL VILLAGE

Full Metal Village is a 2007 documentary film about the lives of the residents of a small village in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein, Wacken, in a series of interviews and visual tableaux as it prepares for the annual Wacken Open Air Festival. Taglined "Ein Heimatfilm", the director Sung-Hyung Cho explores the relationship of the 1,800 resident townsfolk and the brief annual influx of 70,000 metal music enthusiasts[1] who attend the open-air concert. The slow, cynically irreverent tone of the film lends an air of the absurd to both sides of the proceedings including elderly villagers who confess to have 'heard' that the concert-goers worship Satan, and over-enthusiastic concert-goers headbanging to the traditional regional anthem played by a local fire department band to open the festival.
