Hot on the heels of the groundbreaking smash hits Vatican Museums 3D and Florence and the Uffizi Gallery comes a brand-new documentary on the life and work of Italian master Caravaggio and the birth of modern painting.
Caravaggio: The Soul and the Blood is an immersive and visually stunning journey of light and shadows through the struggles and successes of the revolutionary and controversial artist, joining him on his travels through Milan, Venice, Rome, Naples, Sicily and Malta as he tries to flee his many demons.
Utilising state-of-the-art cinematic techniques, stunning 4K projection, commentary from leading historical experts and art historians, and unprecedented access to the masterpieces themselves, Caravaggio: The Soul and The Blood is a must-see for any art lover, exclusive to cinemas.
“A new film about Caravaggio’s extraordinary artistic vision, Caravaggio: The Soul and the Blood, takes the viewer inside the Contarelli Chapel. You can imagine stepping out of the bright Roman sun and into the church’s grandly ornate interior…
…It’s commonplace to say Caravaggio’s paintings have a cinematic quality, but in cliche there is truth. The drama and immediacy he achieves in his pictures were astonishing to his contemporaries four centuries ago and are no less so today.” The Australian
