Sinopsis

The final documentary from the hands of the director from Barcelona, who is well known at Punto de Vista, will also see the light with its premiere in Spain on our tenth anniversary of the Festival. A perfect gift that will be rounded off with his presence to discuss the film and meet the film audience. The film is based on Saint-Louis Cathedral in La Rochelle, a cathedral that is not at all “flamboyant”, but hides unique treasure in one of its chapels in which the filmmaker puts his eye and… his soul. There, among  a multitude of offerings from the Merchant Navy, a painting that is witness to the tragedy of the Saphir  in 1741 can be contemplated, a slave schooner that was run aground in inter-tropical waters, with  271 slaves and 30 crew member aboard. This small painting is like a secret door in a cathedral that opens up to the big story.
