The Search for the Last Supper
In this thriller-like quest, a National Geographic bestselling author and historian goes in search of a mysterious second version of the famous ‘Last Supper’ fresco, reportedly painted by Leonardo da Vinci and his workshop for the King of France, Louis XII. Shot on location throughout Europe, the film features rich dramatizations starring Alessandro Demcenko as Leonardo da Vinci heading a cast of 60+, as well as top Leonardo experts from the Louvre, the London National Gallery, the Royal Academy of Arts, the Vatican Museums and the New York Metropolitan Museum. The film is produced by Pantheon Studios, producers of the 2016 Disney feature ‘Walt: The Man Behind the Myth.’ The film also includes a detailed animated reconstruction of the Last Supper hall in Milan in 1499. The host is Prof. Jean-Pierre Isbouts, co-author of ‘Young Leonardo’ (St. Martin’s Press, 2017) and the author of several bestselling National Geographic books.
