Can we ever really capture a life on film?

This collection offers a wide range of portraits, both in close up and from the widest perspective, of historical figures. What emerges is less an accurate history of each subject than an interpretation of their life, aiming for a truth that embodies their struggle, work or how they related to others.

From royalty, in Alberto Serra's intimate account of the dying days of the great French monarch in The Death of Louis XIV (opening in cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema 14th July), to artists, writers and first ladies, this collection presents a compelling tapestry of past lives.
