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, filmmaker Griet Teck and historian Maud Seuntjens 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.
