Documentary about the life and work of the late author W.G. Sebald, directed by Grant Gee. Though born and raised in Germany, Sebald relocated to Britain in the 1970s to work at the University of East Anglia and a number of his books display the influence British life and the English countryside had upon him. The documentary draws on one of Sebald's most celebrated works, 'The Rings of Saturn', in which he describes at length a journey along the East Anglian coast, the people he meets and the memories it provokes. The film recreates elements of the walk and also talks to fellow artists who were influenced by Sebald, including Robert Macfarlane, Rick Moody and Tacita Dean.
