St. Louis Art Museum
I am so ready for this. The Inferno is a fully restored print of terrific cinema from 1911. It is Italy's first feature film and we are so lucky to be able to see a fully restored print in a theater setting.
It takes Dante's The Inferno and amps up the fantasy and magicalness.
The film also offers us a rare moving glimpse of popular of pre WW1 European pop culture.
To make it all better you get the cherry on top of having New Music Circle provide the film score.
