1937, USA, Frank Capra, 132 min.
Introduced by Soundwalk Collective founder Stephan Crasneanscki
Frank Capra’s Lost Horizon is a visual tour de force and perhaps the ultimate utopian fantasy of the West’s preoccupation with the Himalayas.
When Robert Conway (Ronald Colman), a diplomat stationed in China, attempts to rescue a group of Westerners, his plane is hijacked and crashes in the Himalayan mountains near the magical valley of Shangri-La. As he learns more about the remarkable inhabitants of the valley, Conway discovers that the plane crash may not have been an accident.
“An artistic achievement of the first order and a triumph for Frank Capra.” —The Hollywood Reporter
