Once a treasure only for initiates, now available for everyone - the European underground heritage
We got the great opportunity to film some among the most famous books in the field of Western Esotericism like the Corpus Hermeticum, Tabula Smaragdina, Atalanta Fugiens, Spaccio della bestia trionfante, Plontin Polyglot Bible, all of them containing intriguing symbols illustrated in unique or very seldom pieces of late medieval woodcuts, baroque drawings, XVIII-th century engravings. Looking like a sort of cloak-and-dagger mystery plays, these at that time clandestine and heretical writings, arcane in the visions and hermetic in the language, constitute the basis of the heterodoxicity of our modern dissenting currents of thought and alternative ways of life. Old forgotten stories, our unsung, ignored roots and traditions of resistance to prevailing culture.
