Dalí’s Greatest Secret (2013)


Dalí’s Greatest Secret (2013) Paul Perry wrote and directed this documentary that focuses on Salvador Dalí’s commission to paint the first vision of Fatima, The Vision of Hell. Conceived by John Hartford of the Blue Army as publicity celebrating the Vatican’s proposed 1961 disclosure of the secret third vision, the painting, over which Dalí struggled for several years, shocked and disconcerted church leaders, winding up hidden for 30 years under a nun’s bed. For Dalí, however, this was a personal testament to his conversion to Catholic mysticism. This documentary also takes note of Dalí’s later paintings, which centered on Christian themes of crucifixion and resurrection.
