The Gates of Hell

Let me bring this to your attention. Erwan Bomstein-Erb, the founder and director of Canal Educatif in Paris, has released a documentary (in English) about  The Gates of Hell, a monumental project that Auguste Rodin worked on, not necessarily consistently, for 37 years. On its own, this video is worth your time. But you should also know that this is one of ten films about major artworks that Bomstein-Erb plans to produce in HD.  Canal Educatif is all about using the internet to provide global access to “cultural capital.” A goal that we can wholeheartedly support. This kind of philanthropic venture is hard to fund, especially during these difficult times. So Bomstein-Erb is looking for sponsors and partners to support his mission. If you would like to get in touch, you can drop him a line through Canal Educatif’s web site. Lastly, you should check out the Canal Educatif channel on YouTube. Good luck Erwan.
