Plot Summary: W.G. Sebald (1944-2001), one of the 20th century's greatest literary figures, wrote evocatively of memory and exile, destruction and decay; his legion of fierce admirers compare him to Virginia Woolf, Proust, and Rousseau. The film, assembling critics and colleagues to reflect on Sebald's 1998 book, "The Rings of Saturn," is both an essay in interpretation and an attempt to replicate the writer's distinctive, elusive sensibility in a visual medium. (The film) tries to be both descriptive and immersive, explaining its subject even as it reproduces aspects of his style." The film includes commentary by writers and artists, including Robert McFarlane, Rick Moody, Adam Phillips, Tacita Dean and Chris Petit.
