A richly textured essay film on landscape, art, history, life and loss, 'Patience (After Sebald)' offers a unique exploration of the work of internationally acclaimed writer W.G. Max Sebald via a walk through East Anglia tracking his most influential book, 'The Rings of Saturn'.
From the award-winning Director of 'Joy Division', 'Patience' is the first film about Sebald internationally, marking fifteen years since the writer's untimely death, and with contributions from major writers, artists and film-makers.
"I’m a massive fan of Sebald and his psycho-geopgrahical musings. Doing films based on books, artists or bands are always tricky, because they are such a minefield of expectations. But this film definitely did the great man justice. Reading Sebald is like having a strange dream and Grant Gee’s film captured that atmosphere beautifully, in perfect tandem with the music by The Caretaker. Gee's another true British original who should be celebrated more I think!" - Tom Geens
