Season 8: “Inferno: From the Ashes” - Zargara

Season 8: “Inferno: From the Ashes”

// Shop Collection
// Look-book // Ottawa Presentation Recap
// Ottawa Presentation After party Recap

The story is inspired by the original “Inferno” poem from the “Divine Comedy” Saga by Dante Alighieri.

Dante broke down Inferno (Hell) into 9 different circles. Based on the sins that you had committed on Earth, you were separated and placed into different circles accordingly. The main character is also named Dante who is guided by Virgil through Inferno to get to the next level “Purgatory” (Limbo, in between Heaven and Hell) and “Paradiso” (Heaven) after that.

Our take on the story has 9 chapters which u can view below.

We also did a short film based on our take on the story. You can view the trailer below. The film is doing a festival circuit right now, so it will be online in a year.
