  • Directed By: Julian Schnabel

Hosted by the School of Visual Arts Lou Reed's critically acclaimed 1973 album "Berlin" was yet another musical step forward in the career of the man who brought the darkest themes of literature to rock and roll.

In 2006, backed by a full orchestra, Reed performed the mini-opera in its entirety over five nights at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn, NY. And, under the direction of painter/director Julian Schnabel, this historic event was captured on film. | Read More
