THE GREAT PASSION
Documentary by Jörg Adolph, 144 Min., Germany 2012
From the preparations in 2008 until the last performance in the autumn of 2010, the film puts Christian Stückl at its centre, the passionate and obsessed theatre-maker and director of the play who is facing century old traditions and the challenges of reality in a small contemporary Bavarian village.
THE GREAT PASSION shows what goes on behind the curtains of this great spectacle that oscillates between art and commercialism, world and village, God and humans.
