Casanova Undressed: A Sky Arts and Balandi Production (2016)

Description
His very name is synonymous with seduction but what was world famous adventurer and author Giacomo Casanova really like? Although considered a ruthless, insatiable libertine and one of the biggest playboys history has ever known, Casanova was a Venetian who wore many masks, including that of a secret agent, gambler, mathematician and entrepreneur. Narrated by actor and Casanova biographer Ian Kelly (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1), this documentary heads under the covers to reveal just what made Casanova one of the most complex and controversial characters of the 18th century. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the producers, writers, artists and scholars who created or contributed to this documentary. They will talk about the challenges, surprises and many delights of working on Casanova, all the better to “undress” him.
