Note / For the exhibition ‘Mitenand’, which means ‘together’ in Swiss German, Van Warmerdam made a film of a choir performing a contemporary work by composer Roderik de Man. As companion piece she filmed a young man yodelling in the Swiss Alps. In Koor the footage of the choir, filmed from behind, is alternated with a shot that refers to the local yodelling tradition.
