His Comedy (1994)

Film details

Cast & Credits


The poet Dante is taken by Virgil through the gates of the city of desolation and into the centre of Hell. What he sees is not simply an apocalyptic vision of the punishment that awaits the sinners after death, but also the very real horrors committed by human hands on earth. Based on Gustav Doré's nineteenth century woodblock engravings illustrating Dante's Divine Comedy. All the images are produced by engraving directly into the surface of 35mm colour film stock.
