Art approaches the sacred in Christoph Schaub’s breathless documentary. He’s a lover of beauty and a seeker of the divine, and this profile of contemporary religious architecture offers rewards for the senses as well as for the soul. His subjects include Peter Zumthor, James Turrell, Cristina Iglesias, and Peter Märkli - people who’ve designed temples, churches, and other buildings with an eye toward the otherworldly. As they hold forth on their beliefs, we gaze at their creations - many of them austere and superficially simple, but all of them ingenious.
Schaub and cinematographer Ramón Giger have laid on a feast for our eyes. They show us the works from an awed, reverential distance, then take us inside; so wide are the interior shots that we seem to be at worship and in nature simultaneously. Best of all are the looks upwards: through windows, spires, and more, we’re directed toward light and sky. That’s the meeting point Schaub and his architects are looking for - between the sensory and the celestial - and this film is an invitation to join them there.
"[A] delicate and ambitious film that we should embrace…" - Giorgia Del Don, Cineuropa
