When Boris Acosta was 8 years young, he produced and directed his first film wearing as many hats as any filmmaker could wear. He found a large magnifying glass, 15 cm in diameter, which he used to build a projector using a wooden box, with a hole in the front to fit the magnifying glass, and, with the help of his grandfather, put a light in the back of the box. He bought two issues of the same comic magazine, which he cut into strips and glued them together by their edges to make a big roll out of them. He put the roll of comic strips in between the light and the magnifying glass and projected it on the wall. One could say that this was the first home projector ever, but he never thought of it that way. However, this was certainly Acosta's first film.

Below is a summary of some of Boris Acosta's films that have been released and will be released soon. Although there are more films in post-production, they will be added here as time allows. Nevertheless, you can see the entire public list of films here.

You may click on each poster to visit the official website of the film you are interested in.

Click to visit Dante's Inferno - Abandon All Hope website  

Dante's Inferno - Abandon All Hope was Boris Acosta's first film, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in France, and later was part of the Rhode Island Film Festival in the United States and the Fantastik Film Festival in Lund, Sweden, all out of competition. It was certainly a thrilling experience in all respects. This film features mainly illustrations by Gustave Dore as well as clips from Inferno (1911) film, so it made sense to make the whole documentary in black and white, which later inspired the film "The Artist" to be produced in black and white as well, which ended up winning an Oscar.  

Dante's Inferno - Abandon All Hope, a 42-minute film, features Jeff Conaway, Vincent Spano, Nia Peeples, Patrick Kilpatrick and Martin Cove among other celebrities. Watch the trailer by clicking here

This film is available in both, DVD and VOD.

 

   
Click to visit Dante's Hell Animated website  

Dante's Hell Animated was not a film planned in itself. There was no budget for it, nor the intention to make it the way it ended up to be. It started with Mr. Acosta's idea of making a few clips to enhance a new documentary in color and full feature. So, after a few clips were produced based on Dino Di Durante's 72-piece collection, the excitement of seeing art coming alive in motion, the idea of putting together some clips ended up in producing more and more until it became a film in itself. So, later on with Eric Roberts coming on board, as well as other celebrities now in this film, the rest is history.

Dante's Hell Animated, a 39-minute film, is a real jewel which features Eric Roberts as Dante, Vincent Spano as Virgil and Nia Peeples as Beatrice, among a long list of celebrities.  Watch the trailer by clicking here.

This film is available in both, DVD and VOD.

     
Click to visit Inferno Dantesco Animato website  

Inferno Dantesco Animato is the Italian version of Dante's Hell Animated, narrated in Dante's own words and features Franco Nero as the narrator, Vittorio Gassman as Dante, Silvia Colloca as Beatrice, and Vittorio Matteucci as Virgil, among several known Italian celebrities.

Inferno Dantesco Animato has not yet been released, although it won "Best Edited Film" at the Rosarito International Film Festival in Mexico. Contrary with the English version, Inferno Dantesco Animato will have facial animations, meaning the characters will move their lips, eyes and cheecks as they speak.

We expect to finish production of this film later in 2018, including versions subtitled in Spanish, French, Portuguese and other languages. Watch the trailer by clicking here.

Click to visit Inferno By Dante website  

Inferno by Dante is a very special film, because it took 10 years to make. The reason it took so long is because Mr. Acosta was not fully satisfied how easy it would be for people to understand such a complex story. In the production process, he had to direct a 72-piece art collection painted by Dino Di Durante, which is now printed in books and available in 33 languages and several formats. This alone took 9 years to finalize. Mr. Acosta also wrote a thesis titled Inferno by Dante Decoded, where he explains how Hell was a natural development in a hollow Earth and how it took place, circle by circle. This is the first time in film history that somebody has attempted to document Dante's Inferno in as much detail as possible while at the same time engaging the audience tight to their seats. "Inferno by Dante" certainly has a spectacular value in itself, especially for anyone who has the desire to approach Dante's literary masterpiece and be transported to the discovery of the rich descriptions of his universe but also has all the characteristics to become an indispensable learning tool.

Inferno by Dante, an Oscar quality 108-minute feature film, is based on the greatest Christian story ever written after The Gospel, Dante Alighieri's literary masterpiece The Divine Comedy - Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise.

Inferno by Dante is a documentary like never seen before, leaving no stone unturned in Hell.  It features Eric Roberts, Franco Nero, Vincent Spano, Nia Peeples, Veronica De Laurentiis, Jeff Conaway, Davide di Donatello winners Marco Bonini and maestro Vittorio Gassman, among over 30 celebrities, professors and scholars from both the US, the UK, and Italy, including a Monsignor from The Vatican.

This four-quadrant documentary is highly engaging and it submerges the audience like few films can accomplish, particularly a documentary. Watch Inferno by Dante trailer by clicking here. He has scheduled the release of Inferno by Dante, and the two sequel documentaries dedicated to the exploration of Purgatory by Dante (2019) and Paradise by Dante (2020).
