Trailer: Dante"s Inferno (1911)

The poet Dante is lost in a dark and gloomy wood. At the summit of a mountain he sees the light of salvation. He endeavors to ascend to it, but his way is barred by three wild beasts, symbolizing Avarice, Pride and Lust. Beatrice sees his predicament and descends from Paradise into Limbo, where she asks the poet Virgil to rescue and guide Dante. Virgil knows another way to go, but this leads straight through the entire Inferno, before it continues towards Paradise. Virgil leads Dante to the portals of Inferno. Charon ferries them over the river Acheron, and then they start their journey downwards through the different circles of Inferno. Dante meets all kind of sinners and sees the never-ending punishments they have to undergo. The various punishments are adjusted to the different transgressions. Among the sinners Dante recognizes many persons he has met in Florence, when they were still alive. They tell him their sad stories and why they have ended here. At last Dante and Virgil meets the arch traitor Lucifer, who holds the bodies of Brutus and Cassius in his mouth. The two poets climb down the shaggy sides of Lucifer, to reach the subterranean way which leads out of Inferno.

Inferno is a remarkable film from 1911 based on the poem by Dante Alighieri. Directed by Francesco Bertolini, Adolfo Padovan and Giuseppe de Liguoro it was the first Italian feature film and features some striking images, spectacular for their time.

I have written a new soundtrack to the film inspired by the entrancing beauty of Gregorian Chant, music which resonates both with the images and the story. I have taken this music, and written some original material, to create a soundtrack which I believe remains true to the spirit of the poem and the film. The chants I am working with were written at, or before, the time of Dante, it is the music he would have known.

The planned screenings of the film will be accompanied with a live laptop performance of the soundtrack.
