Presentation of the film for France Bleue by Elisabeth Toulet

"Undertaing a film that makes the great tympanum vibrate was a creative adventure that aroused both our enthusiasm and awe, finding ourselves so close to these images carved 900 years ago in anonymity. Thanks to the ways of seeing of three photographers working together, to the enlivening writing of an actress, to a sound track embracing the text as much as the carved reliefs, to the advice of experienced artisans, to the participation of researchers passionate about symbolism and theology, the film came into being. May it update the prophetic vision of the great tympanum, this ancient and ever new Word. " Hélène Ramin.
