Botticelli: Inferno


Venue

Raffertys Theatre

Dates

11 February - 18 February 2017

A journey to the underworld through the 9 circles of Hell, to reveal the secrets of a work of art which continue to intrigue the world. Shot in exclusive European locations such as the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the Vatican Library, London, Berlin and the Scottish lowlands, this astonishing and immersive film delves deeply into Botticelli’s legendary painting.

Even after many centuries Botticelli’s works continue to engage and excite. Every year his most famous paintings draw thousands upon thousands of visitors to museums and exhibitions all over the world. However one of his most intimate and mysterious drawings – perhaps one of the most significant if we are to achieve a deeper understanding of him – lay locked up for years in the climate-controlled vaults of the Vatican. This is the drawing that Botticelli dedicated to Dante’s Inferno, which has now taken the leading role in an original, exciting documentary film.
