Director: David Hammer
The film takes the audience on a digital tour of Scuola Grande di San Marco, a prestigious 16th century confraternity that venerated Saint Mark and provided assistance to the sick and needy. Renaissance painter Jacopo Tintoretto furnished four paintings for the organization: Miracle of the Slave, Removal of the Body of St. Mark in Alexandria, St. Mark’s Body Brought to Venice and Finding of the Body of St. Mark chronicling biblical tales of St. Mark, the namesake of the confraternity and patron saint of Venice.
