Walter Arlen's first century

AT 2018, 94 min, Stephanus Domanig

Exile music is not written by those who life left unchallenged.

Walter Arlen is now almost 100 years old - and the entire century comes to life again in his stories and in his music. From the “blue light of the last streetcar” of his youth in Vienna to the golden sunsets in Los Angeles.

WALTER ARLEN’S FIRST CENTURY paints a affectionate and multifaceted picture of a musician exiled in 1938, who only got to see his works performed late in life.
