Erbarme Dich: Matthäus Passion Stories

by Ramon Gieling
Netherlands, 2014, 99'
Screened as part of the Grand Angle section at Visions du Réel 2015

Visually striking atmospheres and a labyrinthine narrative in which such people as Peter Sellars, Emio Greco, Simon Halsey and painter Rinke Nijburg recount their special relationship with the music of Bach, with Pieter Jan Leusink's Bach Choir & Orchestra providing the score and a group of homeless people as their audience. One of the major music-related films of the year.
