Shards Of Light (2018)

Original title: Jagatud valgus

Documentary Duration 59:00


Estonia has long, dark autumn and winter season. People wait for the light-filled time, so light has a special meaning for the locals. The light also holds a special meaning for Dolores Hoffmann, a stained glass maker, who has been creating stained glass art for forty-four years. Stained glass is an art form born with Christianity, with the churches and cathedrals. People come to church to attend to their most personal, deep matters, to pray and meditate. Colourful stained windows are here, creating the link between the space and outside world, to tune the person to the spirit of Holy Ghost.
