The documentary 'The Goodiepal Equation' portrays a highly original and somewhat curious figure in contemporary music and art – the Danish/Faroer artist Goodiepal. He is a loyal friend, a philantrope and a hacker and his personality and mystery is an essential part of his theories. His unconventional way of living is a crucial part of his art practice, and is all about bright imagination, genuine altruism and empathy. One of his recent projects is the band Goodiepal & pals. It acts as a refugee organisation, disguised as a contemporary Tek-Rock-Band - conducted by Goodiepal. All the money that band makes goes straight to stranded refugees. The band have been active for 2 1/2 year and has toured Europe intensively.
Goodiepal is one of the guests for the Eastern Daze Festival: on the first day the documentary will be screened at KASKcinema, in presence of the film director Sami Sänpäkkilä. On the second day Goodiepal & Pals will be performing at TramZwart.
