In the words of the director: “For quite some time I have been fascinated by the spectacular beauty of the 13th Century Roman Liturgy for Easter. The words of early philosopher and church teacher Augustin about the art of the Sequence, which at the time was referred to as a work of music, inspired me to undertake the attempt to produce a film, one which essentially reflects on 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”.

Wolfgang Lehmann (1967) is a German film critic, film curator and experimental cinematographer. In his birthplace Freiburg he organized several events, focusing on avant-garde works and expanded cinema. Since 1994 he has made his own films, which were screened worldwide. He makes use mostly of documentary material, static images, digital and analogue photography. His works can be characterized by an exact and often rhythmic-like montage, as well as extremely short takes that result in overlapping images.
