The Geometry

of Love

Based on a best-selling book by Margaret Visser, The Geometry of Love is a thought-provoking inquiry into the symbolism of churches.
Visser enters the ancient church of Sant’Agnese fuori le mura in Rome and explains the meanings hidden in every aspect of its design, from the altar to the shape of the church itself.
Her observations lead us to unique insights into Christian thought, the evolution of Western civilization and her own spiritual renewal.
Described as “one of the best Canadian documentaries of the season” (Toronto Star, Oct. 2006) and “a model for just how well this sort of thing can be done” (Toronto Metro, Oct. 2006), the film has garnered numerous awards and nominations.
Basé sur le best-seller de Margaret Visser, The Geometry of Love est une enquête sur le symbolisme que l’on retrouve dans les églises.
Déambulant à l’intérieur de l'église Sant’Agnese fuori le mura, à Rome, Visser explique les significations cachées de chacun des détails: l’autel, les colonnes, le plafond bombé et les formes architecturales de l’église elle même.
Ses observations apportent des idées originales concernant la pensée Chrétienne, l’évolution de la civilisation occidentale et le renouveau spirituel de Visser elle-même.
