An odyssey across lost civilizations:
the renaissance of 7 mythic monuments

“I have set eyes on the wall of lofty Babylon on which is a road for chariots, and the statue of Zeus by the Alpheus, and the hanging gardens, and the Colossus of the Sun, and the huge labour of the high pyramids, and the vast tomb of Mausolus; but when I saw the house of Artemis that mounted to the clouds, those other marvels lost their brilliancy…”. Antipater of Sidon (140 B.C).

140 B.C. Between the pressure of the growing Roman Empire and the fall of Hellenistic kingdoms, will the old civilizations survive ? Will their wonderful monuments disappear?

From the pyramids of Egypt to the Lighthouse of Alexandria and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, we follow the odyssey of Antipater of Sidon to discover his famous list of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Between fascination and dangers, the odyssey through Africa, Middle East and Europe reveals the monuments that have changed the history of architecture. Many books, paints, or movies have offered images of the Wonders in backgrounds of scenes of fiction. How many just approached the true?

In 7 steps, the Wonders return to life in a docudrama for an international and educational audience. The project wants to be a reference on Antiquity by providing a wide panorama on the period. A lost heritage that is reborn with archeology and technology: a mix of real shootings in the landscapes of Africa, Asia and Europe, a strong fictional adventure and spectacular HD GCI reconstructions of the monuments. Both historical and technical aspects are a challenge to film and composite this realistic 3D film. An exciting project to produce that already interest partners in Europe and Mediterranean area.
