Abstract:

"This documentary pays tribute to the magic of the original 1972 classic film Cabaret and explores the fascinating and often shocking reality of the people and stories that inspired it. In 1930, a young British writer, Christopher Isherwood, travelled to Berlin, and it is his memoir, Goodbye to Berlin, that vividly captured the period and greatly inspired the classic film. Actor Alan Cumming journeys back to Berlin in Christopher Isherwood's footsteps to delve into the truths behind the fiction and meets many of the original stars including Liza Minnelli and talks to cabaret artists, among them acclaimed performer Ute Lemper. He also talks to the composer of Cabaret, John Kander, about the inspiration for the films most famous songs and discovers the stories of the original composers and performers such as Marlene Dietrich. He also reveals the tragic fate of many of the cabaret artists at the hands of the Nazis." -- Container insert.
