Coming 2022

Fra Angelico a rare and perfect talent

A documentary of spectacular richness 

and intriguing history 

           This is the story of the artist, Fra Angelico, 

       a Dominican friar, who would herald the beginning

       of the Renaissance in 15th century Florence, Italy. 

       In a time when the Medici family ruled Florence,

       Popes made Rome the seat of power and glory,

       and architects, sculptors and painters changed the way

       the human figure, space and light were forever seen,

       Fra Angelico stands out as a rare and perfect talent.*
