Synopsis

North American Premiere

The powerful works of the Italian painter Caravaggio (1571-1610) revolutionized 17th-century painting. With his use of light and shadow, his contrasts and contradictions, his genius and his intemperance, the larger-than-life artist created masterful paintings resplendent with light. The genius’s path is retraced in this powerful narrative film, distinguished by striking images and a superb soundtrack.

This film will also be presented in Quebec City on March 22nd.
