L’Inferno (Featuring Live Score by Maurizio Guarini)

Join us at the Rio Theatre on Sunday, June 16 as we celebrate Italian Heritage Month in Vancouver with a classic of the silent film era – the 1911 Italian film L’INFERNO – featuring a live score performed by Maurizio Guarini, of the famed prog-rock band Goblin.

Ravishingly restored by Cineteca di Bologna, the film is loosed adapted from Inferno, the first canticle of Dante Alighieri‘s Divine Comedy. L’INFERNO took over three years to make, and was the first full-lenth Italian feature film. It currently remains as the world’s oldest surviving feature-length film.

We are excited to welcome Guarini – whose band Goblin famously orchestrated the pioneering scores to numerous Italian “giallo” films – including Dario Argento‘s landmark SUSPIRIA – with his new, original score to this important icon of Italian cinema.

This event is made possible with the generous help and support of Italian Day on the Drive, Vancouver’s Il Centro Italian Cultural Centre , the Vancouver Italian Film Festival, the Italian Contemporary Film Festival, and the Italian Consulate in Vancouver.
