A unique blending of film, art, and music, BERLIN is a rock opera and a concert film revolving around a drug-addicted couple, Caroline and Jim. The album Berlin, released in 1973, has often been referred to as Lou Reed's unknown masterpiece, but was never performed live…until now. For five historic performances, a group of legendary musicians helped Lou Reed bring his lost classic to life. With set design by Julian Schnabel himself, and a backdrop of short movies directed by Lola Schnabel featuring Emmanuelle Seigner (FRANTIC) as Caroline, director Schnabel and renowned concert cinematographer Ellen Kuras captured the overwhelming visual, sonic, and emotional experience that is Berlin.
