SD Italian FF Presents: Caravaggio – The Soul and The Blood

September 19, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - September 19, 2019 @ 9:30 pm

The San Diego Italian Film Festival presents: Caravaggio – L’anima e il sangue 

Directed by Jesus Garces Lambert | 90 minutes

This incredible documentary is a journey through the life, works, and struggles of the great artist Michelangelo Merisi, who took on the name of his hometown, Caravaggio. His life as well as his art was marked by lights and shadows, genius and intemperance, contrasts and contradictions. A revolutionary artist, he was often not so beloved by his contemporaries. He travelled Italy in search of good fortune or perhaps in search of himself, escaping the enemies he always seemed to make along the way, from Milan to Venice, Rome, Naples, Malta, and Sicily. Even his death seems a twist of fate: he died in Porto Ercole, one step away from Rome and salvation.
