Dante’s Inferno

Dermot Mulroney, James Cromwell, Martha Plimpton

DANTE’S INFERNO has been kicking around the cultural playground for over 700 years. But it has never before been interpreted with exquisitely hand-drawn paper puppets, brought to life using purely hand-made special effects.

Until now.

Rediscover this literary classic, retold in a kind of apocalyptic graphic novel meets Victorian-era toy theater.

Dante’s Hell is brought to lurid 3-dimensional, high-definition life in a darkly comedic travelogue of the underworld — set against an all-too-familiar urban backdrop of used car lots, gated communities, strip malls, and the U.S. Capitol. And populated with a contemporary cast of reprobates, including famous — and infamous — politicians, presidents, popes, pimps…and the Prince of Darkness himself.
