Extraordinarily grateful for this cobbled-together and most gorgeous bequest. It is that: an offering. And it is also a testament to the powers of cinematogrphic impressionism. A documentary (only in the strictest sense) that conjoins impressions experienced and impressions remembered. Each act of perceiving is informed by a chain of remembering. It leads to an ending of unspeakable grace for we, the converts.
