The Caretaker - Patience (After Sebald) (History Always Favours the Winners,2011)


Si la música de Kirby ya nos transportaba a imaginarios parajes, Grant Gee (conocido por su documental de 2007: "Joy Division") decide utilizar la magia de Kirby para musicar su película: Patience (After Sebald). De momento no hay ninguna escucha previa disponible (al menos,no la he encontrado), pero podemos ir celebrando ya esta nueva aportación al año más salvaje de Kirby en cuanto a material editado: "Intrigue & Stuff" (en total serán cuatro eps, el cuarto ya en 2012), "Eager To Tear Apart the Stars" y como The Caretaker, la romántica visión de "An Empty Bliss Beyond This World".

"Patience (After Sebald) is a multi-layered film essay on landscape, art, history, life and loss by the acclaimed documentary film-maker Grant Gee. It is an exploration of the work and influence of German writer WG Sebald (1944 – 2001), told via a long walk through coastal East Anglia tracking his most famous book The Rings of Saturn. The book mixed history, travelogue, memoir, meditation, fiction and images to explore the personal, public and often overlooked histories of Suffolk.


Sebald has profoundly influenced some of today's leading writers, thinkers and artists. Some of these – interviewed for the film include Adam Philips, Robert Macfarlane, Rick Moody and Tacita Dean."
