Pompeii: Sin City
Tue 6/7: 7:00p
Playing exclusively at Circle Cinema, GREAT ART ON SCREEN is a new monthly series of event documentaries featuring in-depth looks at the most extraordinary and groundbreaking masters of their time.
An exploration of Pompeii, a city cloaked in mystery and depicted through images and words by the great artists and writers who experienced and imagined it over the course of history: from Pliny the Younger to Picasso, from Emily Dickinson to Jean Cocteau. Famously known for the catastrophic volcanic eruption which buried Pompeii along with its inhabitants over 2000 years ago, Pompeii: Sin City hosted by Isabella Rossellini offers audiences an extraordinary snapshot of Roman life, frozen at the moment of burial, showing how its citizens lived their lives, spent their free time, experienced pleasure, passion, religion and ultimately, their fate.
