Since childhood by sacred buildings, filmmaker Christoph Schaub (1958) draws the viewer into his meditative universe and explores how architecture reflects the infinite. The different perspectives voiced in this thoughtful, immersive look at religious heritage lead us to rethink our relationship with our built environment and the great beyond. Without erring into religious debate, this film contemplates the spiritual force at the heart of architecture, fine arts and nature.
