One of the most iconic structures ever conceived, Barcelona’s La Sagrada Familia is an astonishing architectural project first imagined by Antoni Gaudi in the late 19th century. Sagrada: The Mystery of Creation celebrates Gaudi’s vision while exploring the continuing work of the thousands of artisans and laborers as they strive to complete the colossal basilica.
The film captures the basilica’s quiet ambiance as it peers into nooks and crannies and listens to those who have devoted their lives to work on it. This unhurried, meticulous investigation allows the viewer time to observe, perceive, and reflect upon the historical and spiritual significance of this glorious landmark while gaining deep insight into the ongoing process of artistic creation.
