(Noble PR) Artificial Eye is pleased to announce that Lou Reed's critically acclaimed concert film "Lou Reed's Berlin", directed by Julian Schnabel (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) will be officially released on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday 6th October.
The Special Edition DVD and Blu-ray releases will include Bonus Features including a recently filmed short film of Lou Reed being interviewed at the London Curzon Mayfair cinema by music journalist Paul Morley, plus Song Lyrics and the Theatrical Trailer.
Staging Berlin has been discussed for over thirty years and in December of 2006 it became a reality. Berlin was said to be one of the most depressing albums ever made and as it was brought to life it was far from dismal.
Using the divided city of Berlin as its backdrop the story of Caroline and her lovers is told through the emotive and provocative words of Lou Reed.
With performers Fernando Saunders, Antony, Steve Hunter, Rob Wassermann, Rupert Christie, Sharon Jones, a seven-piece orchestra and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus all working to create a captivating and enveloping world, Reed takes the audience with him as he bares witness to Caroline's self-destruction.
