Documentation about the Swiss band "Celtic Frost"
Sunday, November 16, 2008, at 11.30pm, Swiss national TV station
SF1 premiered the first full-length documentary film shot about
celebrated and controversial Swiss extreme metal group Celtic Frost.
"Celtic Frost - A Dying God" was directed by Swiss journalist and
documentary filmmaker Adrian Winkler, whose team followed Celtic Frost
for two years on the road during the group's final undertaking, the
"Monotheist" Tour, in 2006 and 2007. Winkler captured Celtic Frost
across Europe, Japan, and the United States, as well as at the Wacken
and Hole In The Sky festivals. In addition, the documentary features
dedicated interviews with the group's members.
Winkler: "The film documents Celtic Frost striving to do justice to
their own legendary reputation. It is an emotional journey, capturing,
among other things, the band members facing their own, dark past."
