The documentary Bosch: The Garden of Dreams was produced by LópezLiFilms and the Prado Museum, which this year commemorates the fifth centenary of the painter's death with a major exhibition entitled "Bosch. The Centenary Exhibition."

Under the direction of Jose Luis Lopez Linares, the film focuses on the most important work of the painter and one of the most iconic in the world: 'The Garden of Earthly Delights.' The feature presents a conversation among artists, writers, philosophers, musicians and scientists, regarding the personal, historical and artistic significance of the picture, bringing back a conversation that was started 500 years ago in the court of the Dukes of Nassau (Brussels), when it is believed that the painting was commissioned to Bosch.

We have very little information about the artist's identity and biography, something that helps feed the enigma of the hidden meaning in his works. As Falkenburg, narrator of the documentary and debate moderator with all participants says, "At the end of the novel, the writer reveals the mystery. In this case, the author does not want you to solve the mystery. He wants you to stay in it."

Bosch: The Garden of Dreams is the only film about the author's most important masterpiece: "The garden of earthly delights" and the only one with full access to the mysteries hidden in it.
