Dante: Inferno to Paradise explores the riveting life and times of Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) and his soaring masterpiece, The Divine Comedy – arguably the greatest single work ever created in the history of Western literature. Directed by Ric Burns, and written by Burns and Riccardo Bruscagli, the film chronicles the mesmerizing story, at once dreamlike and hyper-real, that unfolds within the poem itself; the story of how Dante managed to create it under such unpromising circumstances, and how it has been transmitted over time. Including interviews with Riccardo Bruscagli, Teodolinda Barolini, Lino Pertile, Elena Lombardi, Heather Webb, Catherine Adoyo, Claudio Giunta, Theodore Cachey, Manuele Gragnolati, Giuseppe Ledda, Timothy Verdon, Guy Raffa, and others.

Dante: Inferno to Paradise is an outstanding production. It's like walking through a European art museum. The filming is truly a work of art. It is wonderfully presented history and the story is riveting.
