Film Autopsy of The Mill and the Cross

by Salman Hameed
The Procession to Cavalry by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1564)

Couple of weeks ago I had a chance to see this really creative film, The Mill and the Cross. It brings alive a 16th century painting The Procession to Cavalry by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Yes, religion and religious persecution are some of the key themes for the painting. But it is also about peasants and medieval life. The movie is not just about what is in the painting, but it also has the artist thinking about the subject(s) and sketching the very painting itself. You have to watch the trailer to get a feel for how the movie deals with this. Below the trailer is our Film Autopsy of The Mill and the Cross.

And here is the Film Autopsy:
