Julian Jone’s 3D documentary will have a New York premiere at the IFC Center in New York as part of the DOC NYC in November.
The world of Leonardo da Vinci is brought to life by acclaimed BAFTA-winning actor Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who, In the Loop) in a unique 3D documentary hybrid based on the artist’s private journals. The film re-creates the mindscape and ideas of mankind’s greatest polymath as Capaldi narrates passages from the journals, capturing the power of Da Vinci’s artistic imagination. Following a biographical narrative, the feature traces the artist’s thwarted ambitions, anger and sexual desire.
Inside the Mind of Leonardo was broadcast in the UK on Sky Arts 2 in March 2013, and had a one-night screening in Picturehouse cinemas across the UK.
