Fåglar vid havet (Bön)

Synopsis: For quite some time I have been fascinated by the spectacular beauty of the 13th Century Roman Liturgy for Easter. Augustin’s (Philosopher and Church teacher who lived during the transition from the Antique to the Middle Ages) words about the art of the Sequence, which at the time were referred to by the singers as a work of music, inspired me to undertake the attempt to produce a Film, one which essentially reflects what Augustin heard. Indeed what did he hear? A form of communication which didn’t necessitate the spoken word, but one in which one spirit to another was revealed. I have presented here a visual Sequence to the musical Sequence.
