A documentary film by Bruno Aveillan
Divino Inferno reveals the little known story behind the Gates of Hell – one of the most enigmatic masterpieces in the history of art, and the key to the sculptor Auguste Rodin’s œuvre as a whole. Director Bruno Aveillan, himself an artist, brings a startling visual intensity to this poetic, sensuous documentary, in which he and co-writer Zoé Balthus, explore all aspects of the creation of this fascinating monument and paint a vivid picture of Rodin as a visionary artist who pioneered modern art.
