Priložene fotografije su kadrovi iz filma posvećenog slici „Splav Meduze“ koju je 1818. godine, sa samo dvadeset sedam godina, naslikao francuski romantičar, Teodor Žeriko, inspirisan stvarnim istorijskim događajem. Reditelj filma je Herle Jouon, u glavnoj ulozi je Nathan Gabily.

Već sam pisala o ovoj slici u posebnoj objavi tako da detaljnije informacije o inspiraciji i povodu za nastanag ovog dela, ali i o njegovim formalnim odlikama, možete čitati ovde. Takođe, zarad potpunijeg utiska, prilažem i trejler filma. Na sajtu magazina Daily Mail o ovom dokumentarnom filmu piše sledeće:

Now, a French documentary is to explore for the first time the little-known story behind the masterpiece that’s been hanging in the Louvre for nearly two centuries.

„Along with the Mona Lisa, it’s one of the Louvre’s most visited masterpieces. But do people know it’s more than a legend? It really happened, and we’re trying to shed light on why,“ producer Anne Fredon told The Associated Press.

With the help of a psychiatrist as well as author Steven Callahan, who in 1982 survived for 76 days adrift on the Atlantic Ocean in a liferaft, the 90-minute film tries to answer why the survivors degenerated so quickly into savagery.

The film, „The Raft of the Medusa’s Real Story,“ will be broadcast on Arte in France and Germany in early 2015.
