Summary Peter Greenaway's collaboration with the artist Tom Phillips transforms one of the greatest and best known works of art, Dante's 600 year old Inferno, into a post-modern television piece. Utilizing radical new visual techniques, Greenaway and Phillips illustrate and illuminate Dante's text with dazzling imagery and a soundtrack that comments, counterpoints and clarifies. There are visual footnotes delivered by relevant authorities, and these often perform the function of narration as well as explanation. The result is a multilayered video journey through Dante's vision of the underworld, or hell.
