Summary
Radical, new visual techniques are used to bring the first eight cantos of Dante's Inferno to the screen. The film illustrates and complements Dante's text, re-creating a 600 year-old work as a late twentieth century post-modern masterpiece. Eminent scholars in visual sidebars interpret Dante's metaphors and symbolism
