William Segal: William Segal was a philosopher, publisher, writer and painter who searched relentlessly and compassionately for meaning in the 20th century. Segal helped bring Eastern and Western spiritual traditions together, always stressing what connected humanity rather than what differentiated it. In the last decade of his life, Segal befriended the documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, and the two collaborated on this trilogy.
Vézelay: "The magnificent basilica at Vézelay in France has lured pilgrims from around the world for centuries. Its magnetism and serence beauty inspired Segal and Burns to examine the expansive question of search. Vézelay joyously probes the eternal question of individual identity and the obstacles and exhilarations of seeing, searching and being"--Container.
In the marketplace: This documentary was shot throughout the streets of Paris and follows Segal's everday life. The film visits the painter working in his studio and in a gallery as he perpares an exhibition of his lithographs. In his on-camera interviews, Segal talks about his life and the practices he uses to live in the moment, embracing all that is around him.
