Renaissance – Why it matters to the world
The Renaissance has long been seen as a period in Art History where we look and rightly wonder at the work of such artists as Leonardo da Vinci or Michelangelo. However understanding how such remarkable artists came into being and what they were actually reflecting in the history of mankind is the subject of this film. Film maker Malcolm Hossick explores how the Renaissance was a re-examining of the ideas of the society we know as Ancient Greece and how these ideas have fundamentally changed how societies of human beings live together. It is a fascinating story, not just because of the wonderful works of art it reveals but because of the unparalleled opportunities it has given us as individuals. It is such a grand theme that one film can only go so far in revealing it. But it will surely delight and inspire anyone who is trying to make sense of our wonderful world.
