"A symphony of ideas about religion, art, and humanity's place in the universe ... The photography is impressive as well, Haupt's camera moving gracefully through the interior of the basilica and ascending to its spectacular heights." – Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader

The 1926 death of visionary self-taught architect Antoni Gaudí left unfinished Barcelona’s La Sagrada Família basilica, his magnificent masterwork characterized by soaring, organically inspired towers. More than one-hundred years after construction began, the ambitiously avant-garde edifice continues to inspire worldwide awe and creative controversy surrounding its completion, which, like the medieval cathedrals, may well take another century or two. Director Haupt engagingly delves into the past, present, and future of La Sagrada Família through new discoveries, anecdotal evidence in the wake of Gaudí’s missing plans (destroyed during the Spanish Civil War), and the ongoing work of architects and artisans with rival interpretations of the master’s vision. In French, Spanish, English, and Catalan with English subtitles. DCP digital. (BS)
