Pompeii: Sin City

This documentary explores Pompeii, a city cloaked in mystery which has been depicted through images and words by the great artists and writers who experienced and imagined it over the course of history: from Pliny the Younger to Picasso, from Emily Dickinson to Jean Cocteau.  It is most commonly known for the catastrophic volcanic eruption which buried it and its inhabitants over 2000 years ago. Hosted by Isabella Rosellini, the film offers audiences an extraordinary snapshot of Roman life in Pompeii frozen at the moment it was buried, showing how its citizens lived their lives, spent their free time, experienced pleasure, passion, religion and their fate.
