“Making a film that makes the great eardrum vibrate was a creative adventure that aroused our enthusiasm as much as our fear, finding us so close to these images cut 900 years ago in anonymity. Thanks to the combined eyes of three photographers, the playful pen of an actress, a musical writing that embraces the text as much as the sculpted reliefs, the advice of knowledgeable craftsmen, the availability of researchers passionate about symbolism and theology, the he work was born. May she actualize the prophetic vision of the great eardrum, this old and ever new Word. ” Hélène Ramin.
