Gotimna Pictures, LLC and Dante Coin present Dante's Hell - a film produced and directed by Boris Acosta.
Dante's Hell is a family oriented four-quadrant film based on Dante's Inferno story, the first part of The Divine Comedy literary masterpiece, written by Dante Alighieri in Italy between 1302-1313. It is also based on the recently finished thesis "Dante's Hell Decoded", which introduces to the academic world a new vision of Hell never thought about before. In addition, it features a completely new re-painted 75-piece art collection by Dino Di Durante, never seen before, which visually supports the thesis above.
So, what kind of film is Dante's Hell? A documentary? A live action film? An animation? No, and yes to all. It is kind of a hybrid film that crosses over many types of genres and one that does not fit in any current category known to date. Dante's Hell is a breakthrough type of film, which features live action clips from L'Inferno (1911), animation clips from Dante's Hell Animated and Inferno Dantesco Animato, voice overs, as well as actors, actress and scholars telling the story in front of the camera along never seen before paintings supporting the story.
Dante's Hell is not only a tribute to Dante Alighieri, the best Italian poet of all time, but also to many great artists that illustrated this story as well as to the first Italian feature film in history - L'Inferno (1911).
The Divine Comedy - Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso - is known as the greatest Christian story ever written after The Gospel. It is also an allegory of life; a vision of the world of the hereafter. The story is divided into one hundred chapters (cantos), which reflects the Christian faith and is considered one of the greatest literature classics of all time. It was the first poem ever written in Italian, through which Dante hoped to convert a wrong done world to righteousness and also gave the Italian people a common written language, and a spoken one later on.
Dante's Hell is a feature film, depicting the story of a man that went on a journey through the worst of the afterlife, Hell, to finally consummate his love relationship at the gate of Paradise (3rd sequel). This film is also a Tribute to Hollywood legend and Golden Globe nominee Jeff Conaway, who left us his great Christian legacy.
Dante's Hell is a compelling film presented as a visual and narrative journey to Inferno told by over 30 celebrities, scholars and artists from the United States, the UK, Italy and The Vatican. It features Oscar and Golden Globe nominee Eric Roberts, Golden Globe nominee Jeff Conaway, Italian Legends Franco Nero (Golden Globe and David di Donatello winner), Arnoldo Foà, and Monsignor Marco Frisina from The Vatican, to mention a few. The Infernal story is presented circle by circle in an unprecedented and unique way that no other film has done up until now. Visually, it features over 300 paintings and illustrations by Gustave Dore, Francesco Scaramuzza, Amos Nattini and Giovanni Stradano among many other artists. In addition, it features 72 original paintings, by Dino Di Durante, from the already published book available in 30 languages Inferno - The Art Collection. It also features some dramatic animation clips from the historic animation film Dante's Hell Animated featuring Eric Roberts as Dante. Furthermore, the final touch of this great film is the addition of some excerpts from the first Italian feature film L'Inferno (1911).
The main purpose of this film is to present Dante's story in an easy and understandable way to encourage people to read The Divine Comedy book. With this mind, Boris Acosta produced and directed a music video based on the official song of Dante's Hell and Dino Di Durante's new 75-piece art collection.
