Luther & his legacy

By Peter Greenaway

Production year: 2018

Runtime: 00h55

On the occasion of 500 years of Reformation (October 31st), Peter Greenaway made a visually stunning critical documentary about Martin Luther, his – mainly because of the invention of the printing press – successful reformation, its disastrous consequences, and the power of visual culture, based upon 16th and 17th century paintings, drawings and pamphlets used as propaganda for the mainly illiterate population.
He draws parallels with today’s communication explosion/distribution of “news » and the necessity to be digitally literate.
