Reel to Real Cinema x The Stove Cafe Present: Patience (After Sebald)

May 5 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Patience (After Sebald) | 2012 | Dir: Grant Gee | English | 90 mins 

For our May edition of Reel to Real, we are delving into the world of literature and landscape, with a screening of film essay, Patience After Sebald. The film is inspired by author W.G. Sebald’s 1995 book The Rings of Saturn, a novel that begins as a record of the authors journey on foot through coastal East Anglia, becoming an evocation of people and cultures past and present. 

About the Film 

Award-winning director Grant Gee (Joy Division) ventures to East Anglia to provide an impression of the influential German writer W.G. Sebald (1944-2001). A film about landscape, art, history, life and loss, featuring contributions from Tacita Dean, Iain Sinclair and other major artists. Patience After Sebald is the first in a trilogy of feature-documentaries about landscape and literature. Featuring a soundtrack by James Leyland Kirby’s acoustic music project, The Caretaker, the film is described as a haunting, hypnotic work and journey.
