23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Film theorist André Bazin yearned to shoot a film about the churches of the French province of Saintonge. Several decades later, Pierre Hébert presents a reconstruction of Bazin’s dream in an animated documentary film that is also a philosophical meditation on the relationship between architecture and cinema.
Pierre Hébert (1944) is a Canadian filmmaker and visual artist who frequently collaborates with choreographers and musicians to create live visual performances. He also writes about film and art in books and magazines.
