“Arvo Pärt – Even if I lose everything”
Dir. Dorian Supin
Dorian Supin’s third documentary film of Arvo Pärt steps closer to the composer, showing him in a domestic setting as a composer, husband, father and grandfather.
The title “Even if I lose everything” refers to an entry in Arvo Pärt’s musical notebooks, which the composer pages through in the film. The musings and recollections inspired by the notes in these journals, in parallel with domestic scenes, shed light on the composer’s life and creative philosophy, painting a personal, in-depth picture of Arvo Pärt.
The film was produced by the Minor Film studio in collaboration with the Arvo Pärt Centre, UE and ECM Records and its soundtrack includes excerpts from Pärt’s works.
Special screening takes place in collaboration with Industry Tallinn / Black Nights Film Festival and is part of Music Meets Film programme at the Arvo Pärt Centre.
