A film by Stefan Haupt
The “Sagrada Família” in Barcelona is a unique and fascinating building. It is the brainchild of the architect Antoni Gaudí, a once controversial genius, and the work of an army of laborers. The edifice has a history with many highs and lows and raises a multitude of questions.
We normally experience a cathedral or church in its finished form, as the witness of a period long gone. By contrast, the construction of the Sagrada Família is anything but complete. We can see with our own eyes how the edifice is growing and evolving, even today, as it has done for the past 130 years.
SAGRADA is a film about the mysterious process of artistic creation, revolving around the question of our human creative power and how we want to use it.
