Sneak Preview of the film "Dante's Inferno". I
n 2004-2005 Sandow Birk illustrated and, with Marcus Anders, adapted Dante’s Divine Comedy, placing Dante’s classic text within the landscape of contemporary Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City, and Tokyo. Working with director Sean Meredith and puppeteer Paul Zaloom, and utilizing the vocal talents of actors Dermot Mulroney (Dante) and James Cromwell (Virgil), Birk has adapted the text and illustrations of the updated Inferno into a film using the two-dimensional puppets of 19th-century "toy theatre" to tell the story.
