Ingel Vaikla, Roosenberg

master audiovisuele kunsten - film

Roosenberg is a place, a space, a building, a film. Roosenberg is Amanda, Godelieve, Rosa and Trees. Roosenberg is a letter that tells of my encounter with four elderly nuns in a fascinating monastery in Waasmunster, Belgium, before that building was vacated. For several months, I followed four women who belong to the core community of Marian Sisters of St. Francis in Dom Hans van der Laan’s Monasterium. I captured the everyday communal life of the sisters, their religious practice and final departure, in order to tell the story of modernist architecture. But this film is not the glorious celebration of that spiritual modernity. It is the story of an encounter, a story of a space at the beginning of the end.
