Hieronymus Bosch’s astounding masterpiece, The Garden of Earthly Delights, lures us into a fever dream of a landscape, with a bird-headed creature eating a naked man, giant strawberries, a pig dressed as a nun, and figures of all sorts caught up in scenes of carnal frenzy and hellish torment. What does it all mean? Through exclusive access behind the scenes at the Prado Museum, including an X-ray examination of the painting and its restoration, and interviews with art historians and scientists, this film offers a fresh take on a painting that continues to fascinate and perplex, more than 500 years after it was executed. Featuring insights from opera star Renée Fleming, artist Cai Guo-Qiang, former Metropolitan Museum director Philippe de Montebello, writers Orhan Pamuk and Salman Rushdie, and other creative thinkers.
2016. 84 m. José Luis López-Linares. Latido Films. Spain/France. English/French/Spanish/Chinese. Rated NR.
