Film Screening “WALTER ARLEN’S FIRST CENTURY” at the Austrian Cultural Forum New York | June 12, 2019

WALTER ARLEN’S FIRST CENTURY, a documentary by Vienna-based filmmaker Stephanus Domanig, paints an affectionate and multifaceted picture of a musician exiled in 1938, who only got to see his works performed late in life.

The film accompanies Walter Arlen for a part of his journey. With ease it paints the portrait of a remarkable man, a man who went through years of darkness but never lost sight of the “blue light of the last streetcar”.

Following the 90-minute screening of the film, there was a Q&A with exil.arte’s founding Director Gerold Gruber and filmmaker Stephanus Domanig.
Jeannie Im (soprano) and Dan Franklin Smith (piano) presented examples of Arlen’s musical oeuvre including “Five Songs of Love and Yearning.”

Please read the articles on this wonderful evening on Broadway World and Musical America.
