Vezelay two films
'The Dance of the New Adam' The Christ of Vezelay is not seated, he is dancing. He does not judge, he welcomes. He is not enthroned in solitude, he dwells among men. Under the impetus of a new energy, men and animals, plants and constellations also begin their dance around this Christ, “New Adam”. Thanks to exceptional photos, this film invites you to slip into the folds of the stone. It makes a universal word vibrate, a universal word that outstanding craftsmen, who have remained anonymous, have been addressing to us since the 12th century. It offers everyone, visitors or pilgrims, adults or children, simple landmarks for in-depth reading, a wonder that suspends the march of time. Sources abound: biblical stories, commentaries by the Fathers of the Church, references to very ancient iconographic traditions. Interpretations abound! But above all, do not say too much and let the work breathe in everyone.
