Director: Phil Grabsky

Genre: documentary

Why does the fantastic imagery of this artist who bridged the medieval and the Renaissance resonate so strongly with contemporary audiences? Just who was Hieronymus Bosch? Visionary or madman? What lies behind the astonishing worlds that populate his art?

In the Curious World of Hieronymus Bosch we’ll visit the critically acclaimed exhibition Jheronimus Bosch — Visions of Genius that was held at the Het Noordbrabants Museum in the southern Netherlands. The event featured the greater part of Bosch’s paintings and drawings together for the first time to his home town of Den Bosch. Nearly half-a-million people, art lovers from around the globe, showed up to look.

This cinematic take on the riveting existence of a creative genius is a storehouse of anecdote and detail rich enough to dazzle even the most serious Bosch devotee. Not to be missed.
