Gotimna Pictures, LLC presents Inferno by Dante - a film produced and directed by Boris Acosta. This feature film is a breakthrough based on Dante's Inferno story, the first part of The Divine Comedy literary masterpiece, written by Dante Alighieri during his exile from Florence, in Italy between 1302-1321. The film Inferno by Dante 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.
Inferno by Dante is a 2-hour 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 (2nd sequel). This film is also a Tribute to Hollywood legend and Golden Globe nominee Jeff Conaway, who left us his great Christian legacy..
Inferno by Dante is a compelling four-quadrant film presented as a visual and narrative journey to Inferno told by over 30 celebrities, scholars and artists from both Italy and the United States. 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 in 33 languages Inferno - The Art Collection.
