Argentine filmmaker Daniel Berman on the making of his lovely autobiographical dramedy THE TENTH MAN, opening August 5 at the Royal and Town Center

'Hieronymus Bosch: Touched by the Devil' Opens August 5 at the Royal, August 6 at the Playhouse and Claremont

The documentary Hieronymus Bosch: Touched by the Devil follows a team of art historians who try to reveal the mystery of the 25 extant paintings of Hieronymus Bosch. Over the course of five years the research team travelled the world, visiting museums such as The Louvre, The Prado and the National Gallery of Art in Washington to make an in-depth analysis of Bosch’s paintings.
