“The Vitruvian man”, the bicycle, Mona Lisa, the perspective, the “Last Supper” …
How could the same man create in one life, 500 years ago, so many things and lay the foundations of modern times?
In 2019 the 500th anniversary of the death of the Renaissance genius, Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), will be marked all over the world.
Eve Ramboz and Nathalie Plicot, the directors of the film “Hieronymus Bosch, the Devil with angel’s wings”, selected and acclaimed at the FIFA (International Festival of Films on Art), have decided to pay homage to this 15th century genius, shed light on his life and revisit his genius though a wholly original visual adventure, using animations of codex. Special effects will be used to bring Leonardo’s sketches, designs and notes to life. The film will navigate between documentary sections – with filming in Italy between Florence, Roma and Milan -, interviews with art historians who will shed light on the immensity of his genius and animations.
