Patience (After Sebald)

The above is a trailer for a documentary by Grant Gee in which he retraces W.G Sebald’s route along the Suffolk coast – the setting for his novel The Rings of Saturn. I’ve tried and failed to express the depth of my admiration for Sebald on this blog before so I won’t try again. I’m very much looking forward to tracking this down and watching it.

Details of the film’s release dates can be found here while The Guardian has several excellent articles and reviews – here, here and here.

Pitchfork has details of the soundtrack, composed by The Caretaker, whose An Empty Bliss Beyond This World is one of the most unearthly records I’ve ever purchased.
