PATRIMONIUM is an exploration of time. A film about the noble landed gentry, constantly renegotiating the borders between history and modernity. Through scenic tableaus and a strong sense for detail, the film paints a world of tradition and perfection, and in it, the human, with its efforts to fit into the grandeur of an idea.
