Storyline

A film about the art of screaming. Meet the screaming choir that travels from Finland to Tokyo with the goal of getting good photographs of their Japanese audience while performing Japanese national anthem. Meet the choir that screams La Marseillaise at the museum of modern art in Paris even though the museum and the embassy of Finland try to prevent them. Meet the choir that makes parody of nationalism and fascism # and can only be led by a total dictator. The Finnish Screaming Male Choir, Mieskuoro Huutajat, dressed in black suits, white shirts, and rubber ties is a unique choir which performs its repertoire by shouting and screaming. Led by the conductor Petri Sirviö, the choir has traveled during 15 years of existence from an idea in a bar table all the way to the front line of modern European performing arts, receiving the same strong reaction everywhere: the audience has been mostly exalted, and sometimes also shocked and bewildered.

Documentary about a Finnish chorus that elevates screaming to an art form; fun and quirky film!
4 April 2004 | by (Durham, NC (USA)) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed experiencing this fun film today at the Full Frame Documentary Festival here in Durham (we're blessed to have this 4-day festival hailed by many including the New York Times as the country's best documentary film festival. This is a story of the Finnish Screaming Male Choir, conceived I believe in the late 1980s and led by a man, Petri Sirviö, whose idea it is to harness the scream and make music out of it. Petri's wry humor is omnipresent and the stunning photography, such as of the choir performing on ice with a massive ice breaker in the distance that they have just alighted from, make this a joy to watch.
