Starring Jonathan Pryce, director Grant Gee's 2012 multi-layered docudrama film explores WG Sebald's psycho-geographic vision of the East Anglian landscape.

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 mixes history, travelogue, memoir, meditation, fiction and images to explore the personal, public and often overlooked histories of Suffolk.

Refreshments will be available before the performance and during the intervals.

"As Jonathan Pryce reads passages and academic voices take turns to chew over Sebald's visionary opus, black and white footage of country roadsides and wind-blasted coastlines turns rural Suffolk into something truly otherworldly."
