Synopsis

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 (1944 – 2001) via a walk through East Anglia tracking his most influential book, The Rings of Saturn. The much anticipated new feature by the Grierson Award-winning Director of Joy Division, Patience is the first film about Sebald internationally, marking ten years since the writer’s untimely death, and with contributions from major writers, artists and film-makers.
