Carlos Kleiber: I am lost to the world

Even during his lifetime, Carlos Kleiber was a myth: a conductor who was adored by audiences and colleagues. Yet he was haunted by self-doubt, and picked up the baton only reluctantly and – as the years went by – less and less frequently. In this documentary, Georg Wübbolt attempts to show what made Kleiber the phenomenon he was.
