It will be released in Hungarian cinemas from October 14. The latest episode of the Temple of Art educational series, which examines Pompeii’s art and history from a new perspective. Coming with the subtitle Sinful City, instead of the destruction caused by a volcanic eruption, the film focuses on the everyday life of a vibrant ancient city, of which lush sensuality and enjoyment of life were an integral part of the art treasures found among the ruins … showing how its citizens lived their lives, spent their free time, experienced pleasure, passion, religion and their fate.

Synopsis … This documentary explores Pompeii, that city cloaked in mystery which, over the course of history, has influenced culture and art, from Neoclassicism to Contemporary Art, through images and words by the great artists and writers who experienced, visited and imagined it: from Pliny the Younger to Picasso, from Emily Dickinson to Jean Cocteau. The film doesn’t just deal with the volcano eruption, which has gone down in history, but with what the city of Pompeii itself was actually like.
