A film by Joachim Thôme & Jérôme Laffont :
The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb by the brothers Van Eyck.
Our gaze rests on the ‘Ghent Altarpiece‘ or ‘The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb’ and an oversized artistic project with staggering realism before us. This work, painted by Jan and Hubert Van Eyck in 1432, unfolds far beyond what it shows us. Because behind its sacred tale, the altarpiece bears witness to a bewitching artistic adventure and the birth of our modernity.
Thanks to a spectacular staging of this painting, the film offers a captivating plunge into the very heart of the act of creation and tries to give new life to the souls and gestures at the origin of this aesthetic upheaval that was the masterpiece. Work of the Van Eyck brothers.
“Un film d’une beauté et d’une sensualité exceptionnelle”
