Patience, After Sebald

May 11 - May 17, 2012

(Grant Gee, 2011, United Kingdom, Blu-ray, 82 min)

Seattle Premiere! 

Following up his documentaries on Radiohead and Joy Division, director Grant Gee turns his lens on author W.G. Sebald.  An accolade rather than a biography of the German writer, Patience responds aesthetically to the writer’s body of work. A journey through the landscape of the novel The Rings of Saturn with literary commentary, the film, like the writer’s work, pieces together an intimate collage of fiction, nonfiction, history and recollection.
