"Apparation of the Eternal Church"

57 minutes – Paul Festa (director/producer/editor)

7 p.m.

UNO Art Gallery

Like the proverbial blind man describing an elephant, the cast of this documentary puts words to the experience of hearing Olivier Messiaen's monumental organ work, "Apparition of the Eternal Church." The resulting conversation dwells in hilarity and the profane before it yields its insights into the personal and the sublime. This film contains adult language.
