West Coast Premiere of the documentary about the life, works and struggles of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, whose existence, no less than his art, was characterized by lights and shadows, genius and intemperance.

Introduction by Jon R. Snyder, Professor of Italian Studies and Comparative Literature at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Prof. Snyder has published and lectured extensively on the literatures, arts and cultures of early modern Europe, especially Italy. Among his books are L’estetica del Barocco (The Aesthetics of the Baroque, Il Mulino, 2005) which takes the Baroque to be the first global artistic movement, in which revolutionary new ways of representing and narrating sensual and spiritual experience were developed and disseminated on a vast scale.

Produced by Sky and Magnitudo Film.

Organized by the IIC Los Angeles in collaboration with SKY
