LIGHTING THE WAY, The German pioneers of contemporary stained glass
a movie by Sam Halstead
The German pioneers of contemporary stained glass dramatically modernized the medium in individual ways. Looking for a fresh start after World War II, they turned their backs on stained glass traditions and totally reconceptualized the medium. They liberated the leadline from its purely functional role and created huge windows of power and movement. This, for the first time on film, is the story of a major art movement that has been hiding in plain sight.
