POMPEII: SIN CITY

Pompeii: Sin City is a journey back in time, to two thousand years ago, laying bare the myths and characters that helped make this site extraordinary, and rendered it timeless. From the love story between Dionysus and Ariadne, the ambiguous relationship between Leda and the Swan, the bloodlust satisfied by the gladiator fights, to Poppea Sabina’s desperate search for immortality, this documentary film stages and analyses the secret, rather insalubrious side of the city.

Leading us through its cobbled streets is the extraordinary narrator: Isabella Rossellini, directed by Pappi Corsicato with visionary talent. Her presence and voice accompany us on a journey, showing how the myths and works uncovered there have enchanted and influenced artists the likes of Pablo Picasso, Giorgio De Chirico and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. A delicate balancing act of the thin invisible tightrope that separates legend from reality, crossing the centuries to inspire the contemporary world.
