Introduced by director Tony Palmer.

The true story of the ever-popular masterpiece Carmina Burana, performed in its original orchestration and sounding utterly different from what we normally hear.

It forms the backbone of multi-award winning director Tony Palmer's explosive film about its composer Carl Orff, a man wracked with guilt about his mendacious and tragic behaviour during Hitlerís Germany. This film changes forever our understanding of this tormented soul.

Featuring interviews with Carl Orff himself, three of his wives & his daughter Godela. Filmed in Germany, Greece, South Africa, Japan, China and England.

UK 1995/2008 Dir. Tony Palmer 115 min.
