Synopsis
One of the most iconic and enduring human structures ever built, Barcelona’s La Sagrada Familia is a unique and fascinating architectural project conceived by Antoni Gaudí in the late- 19th century. More than 125 years after construction began, the basilica still remains unfinished. Sagrada: The Mystery of Creation celebrates Gaudí’s vision and the continuing work of countless laborers, artisans, designers, and architects as they strive to complete the colossal project while delving into the mysterious process of artistic creation. Despite decades of delays, thousands of artisans, laborers, and designers have contributed to the ambitious and glorious landmark. Inspired by Gaudí’'s vision, the film explores our fundamentally human search for the meaning of existence, and the quest for creative expression.
