The Seven Last Words sounds out experiential states and rituals particular to humanity, based on the seven themes expressed in a musical composition: forgiveness, salvation, relationship, abandonment, distress, triumph, and reunion.
Seven award-winning Canadian filmmakers of diverse origins and art practices explore a wealth of human experience and feeling, based on the seven phrases at the origin of Franz Joseph Haydn’s classical masterpiece.
The result is a wonderfully resonant event that opens a new dialogue between film and music.
