It is a four-quadrant compelling film organized circle by circle and presented in an unprecedented and unique way that no other documentary has done up until now. Dante’s Inferno Documented is a visual and narrative journey to Hell told by over 30 scholars and artists who were interviewed on Dante’s Inferno, in both Italy and the United States. It features over 50 black and white illustrations by Gustave Dore, over 50 original color illustrations from the upcoming Dante’s Inferno comic book and magazine series and a few dramatic animations from the upcoming animation short film.” [. . .]    —Dante’s Inferno Documented
