Giuseppe de Liguoro's classic 1911 silent film, based on the Italian masterpiece 'La Divina Commedia' by Dante Alighieri, is brought out of the archives for this special, newly-restored production accompanied by music from modern recording artists Tangerine Dream. The first Italian feature film ever made, de Liguoro's epic fantasy boasted ground-breaking special effects and set designs that were to influence many decades of cinema. Upon its theatrical release, the film proved to be a runaway success not only in its native Italy but across America and around the world.
