UK 2012. 86 minutes. Director: Grant Gee.
PATIENCE is inspired by THE RINGS OF SATURN, the work of W.G. Sebald (1944 - 2001), the German writer who spent most of his life in Norfolk and taught at UEA. Both book and film take as their starting point a walk around Suffolk, but develop into a reflection on landscape and art, history and memory. With contributions from writers Andrew Motion, Robert Macfarlane, Marina Warner and Iain Sinclair, artists Tacita Dean and Jeremy Millar, theatre director Katie Mitchell and film maker Chris Petit.
Grant Gee’s film is in keeping with the spirit of Sebald's writing: teasing, elegant and perhaps inevitably unresolved: an invitation as opposed to a destination.

This film is being shown as part of the Two Rivers Book Festival. Filmmaker Grant Gee has requested a £50 donation to the Suffolk Wildlife Trust in lieu of the usual licence fee.
The Larks, Liz Miller and Chris Wilbraham, use guitar and mandolin to complement their voices as they call on a wide range of influences and experiences to entertain their audiences. Their original songs can be populated by Mermaids, Nightingales, and Vampires and have been known to describe a Lifeboat Disaster or warn of Climate Change.
Nico Dobben is singer songwriter living in beautiful Norfolk, England, where he moved from the Netherlands in 1975.
Since then he has worked, amongst other things, as a truck driver, cleaner, roadie, factory worker and teacher.
These experiences inspired him to start writing his own songs which he performs in folk clubs, festivals, living rooms, and small theatres.
Performed on the spectacular water stage of Lake Constance in Bregenz (Austria), George Bizet’s Carmen is a story of passion, destiny and obsession. The French composer’s opera is most famous for its Spanish melodies, including the Flower Song, Habanera and the Toreador Song. Experience Carmen like never before – recorded live on the floating stage during the Bregenz Festival. As with their previous spectacular productions, you can expect the staging of this classic tale to have an extravagantly original and innovative design, with the waters of the lake being used as an extension of the stage.
