LOST IN THE STARS - DVD

(American Film Theatre Collection)

Kurt Weill and Maxwell Anderson's musical Lost in the Stars is based on Alan Paton's classic novel Cry. The Beloved Country

This film, like the stage musical and the book is was based on, is a moving indictment of racial hatred, made at the height of apartheid
Lost in the Stars tells the story of small town South African preacher Steven Kumalo, who travels to Johannesburg to find his estranged son
He finds a city where inequalities are magnified, and oppression is virtually impossible to escape, and events spiral into tragedy

Kurt Weill's score is suitable powerful, with much more depth and intensity than the average musical, with a special emphasis on the chorus. Weill seems to successfully create a bridge between popular music and opera - indeed, the piece has been performed by many operatic companies

The AFT film of Lost in the Stars is a heartbreaking plea for compassion and humanity in the face of cruelty, adversity and struggle, and it is a film that remains powerful and relevant today
