"I will seize the gaze of death in your eyes!" - logline for Imago Mortis

There are a number of production sketches for Stefano Bessoni's Imago Mortis, and stills from his Frammenti di scienze inesatte, on the blog of production designer Briseide Siciliano - you can use the blog's search function to find them.

As was previously reported here on Twitch, the screenplay for Imago Mortis was written by Bessoni and Richard Stanley (rewrite), based on a story by the former. Actors attached to the project include María Valverde, Jordi Mollá, Joaquim de Almeida, and Marta Moreira.

Here's a synopsis for Imago Mortis from the production: "They say that in the 1600s, long before the invention of photography, a scientist named Girolamo Fumagalli was obsessed with the idea of reproducing images. He discovered that by killing a victim and removing the victim's eyeballs, it was possible to reproduce on paper the last image imprinted on that person's retinas. He named this technique 'thanatography'. Today, the same kind of gruesome ritual and abominable crime recurs within the walls of an international school of cinema."
