DVD Günter Atteln. The Lost Paradise
“The Lost Paradise” is the documentary by Günter Atteln. The composer Arvo Pärt has given his consent to be accompanied by a camera for an entire year: In his native Estonia, travelling to Germany, Italy, and Japan, where Pärt received the Praemium Imperiale, the world’s most prestigious award in the field of music, in October 2014.
The film is framed by the identically named stage production “Adam’s Passion,” featuring three key works by Arvo Pärt, which American director Robert Wilson brought to the stage in May 2015 in a former submarine factory, the “Noblessner Foundry” in Tallinn.
