Arvo Pärt / Robert Wilson: The Lost Paradise

He is the most performed contemporary composer in the world. And yet Arvo Pärt rarely shows himself to the public, preferring to keep the secret of his music at home in the heart of the Estonian forest. 

This documentary follows him for more than a year, from his native Estonia to Japan, via the Vatican.

We discover from a Soviet-era submarine factory in Tallin The Passion of Adam by composer Arvo Pärt (1935), in a dichotomous collaboration with the very experimental and multifaceted American stage director Robert Wilson.
