Carsten-Stephan Graf v. Bothmer

stephanCarsten-Stephan Graf v. Bothmer is one of Germany’s most famous silent movie pianists.

His repertoire includes German, Russian and American classics, but also unknown films that he revives during his performances. He is a master in his field and plays around with different film genres; monumental Science-Fiction films, melancholic dramas, dark thrillers as well as light comedies.

For each film, Stephan v. Bothmer creates a unique music, which explores all possibilities but never stands in the forefront. It is only the image and the music creating the unique experience: the silent movie concert.

The Amakula International Film Festival is presented by Bayimba Cultural Foundation in partnership with The DOEN Foundation, Africalia, Kampala Film School and the Uganda Museum.
