THE SEARCH FOR THE LAST SUPPER
A film by Pantheon Studios
of Santa Monica, CA
The Search for the Last Supper is a feature-length motion picture now in production at Santa Monica-based Pantheon Studios, based on the revelations in the book Young Leonardo. Filmed on location in Florence, Prato, and Rome with a 60+ cast in period costume and settings, the film is a co-production of Brown Discoveries and Pantheon Studios. The picture is directed by Jean-Pierre Isbouts and features the Italian actor Alessandro Demcenko as Leonardo da Vinci.
The film also features the top Leonardo experts of our day, including Luke Syson (now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art), Larry Keith (National Gallery, London), Vincent Delieuvin (Louvre, Paris), Maya Corley (Oxford University) and British author Ross King, as well as Eugenio Zanetti, the Academy-Award winning artist and production designer of films such as Restoration and What Dreams May Come.
The film’s producers have developed a detailed restoration of what the Milanese refectory, the Cenacolo, would have looked like in 1499, as well as its condition today. Derived from a great array of contemporary sources as well as the modern literature, the reconstruction was produced by a team led by Richard Yarlett of iRay3D. The film is slated for release in late 2017.
Pantheon Studios is a 20-year production company known for high end documentary films. Its most recent production is Walt: The Man Behind the Myth, the official feature-length biography of Walt Disney, which aired on ABC.
