LASSUS, the penitential psalms 

a film by GRIET TECK

An intimate conversation with three detained women about music, guilt, penance and redemption.

How do we deal with confession and penance today? With the Penitential Psalms of Lassus as a guide, documentary filmmaker Griet Teck and Musica initiated conversation with three women from the Penitentiary Complex in Bruges. Within the walls and strict regulations of the prison, a different world exists. The women themselves can not be portrayed; but with music as a medium and the texts of the Old Testament as a source of inspiration, Griet Teck sketches an intimate portrait of three women and their personal experience of penance and guilt. 

The documentary (in Dutch/French) will be shown with aftertalk after the concert of the Vocalconsort Berlin on May 25. The aftertalk will be led by presentator and theatermaker Elena Peeters, within the presence of the filmmaker Griet Teck, Tine van Laeken (De Rode Antraciet) and Maud Seuntjens. Free entrance with a ticket of Topstukweek Lassus.
