Filmmaker Lech Majewski created a bold film that construes a story from a painting, a famous one, too: Pieter Bruegel the Elder's “The Procession of Calvary” (1564).

No convolution here — the film is literally that, telling the painting's story, as well as those of certain subjects within it.

This is a film full of mystique and intrigue, best seen on the Wexner's Contemporary Screen.
