CFDb Interview!

Check out the CFDb Interview with Jenn Gotzon.

Film Synopsis:

Dante’s Inferno – Abandon All Hope is a documentary that not only pays homage to Dante Alighieri, the best Italian poet of all time, but also to Gustave Dore, the best French illustrator and one of the best artists of all time, who illustrated the entire Divine Comedy circa 150 years ago in France.

This short documentary honors Dore’s vision of Dante’s Inferno, in a black and white film that matches his own artistic coloring style. The story is visually told using most of his Inferno collection of lithographs.

The film is a narrative journey from Dante’s own hand, through the worst of the afterlife, Inferno. It is a chronological descent to the deepest of Hell, circle by circle to the exit into Purgatory.

Dante’s Inferno story is told by more than 15 artists and scholars from the United States and Italy, in both English and Italian with English subtitles.

(This film is not really ”Christian”, But a Fictional Story of Hell)
