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 documentary is framed by the stage production of Adam’s Passion in which the artistic visions of Arvo Pärt and Robert Wilson mirror each other. Tracing their creative process, the film offers rare and personal insights into the worlds of two of the most fascinating personalities in the international arts and music scene.
