Sneak into the carved stone of the Great Tympanum of Vézelay: a symbolic journey, poetic, musical full of meaning, emotion, wonder at the heart of this masterpiece of Romanesque art.

"Making a film that makes the great tympanum vibrate was a creative adventure that aroused our enthusiasm as well as our fear, finding us so close to these images carved 900 years ago in anonymity. Thanks to the combined glances of three photographers, to the cheerful feather of an actress, to a musical writing embracing the text as much as the carved reliefs, to the advice of wise artisans, to the availability of researchers passionate about symbolism and theology, work was born. May she actualize the prophetic vision of the great tympanum, this ancient and ever new Word. " Hélène Ramin.
