  by AGON - Wednesday, 4 January 2012

In this documentary we try to understand the situation of the market of antiquities, through the considerations of the most important European’s and international’s specialists: inaccessible and secret places for the general public, like the entrails of the Free-Port of Geneva, the archaeological stocks of the Egyptian Museum of Berlin or the seizures of the Italians Carabineers in Rome, the missions again the smuggling in Italy and in Iraq, as well as the reconstruction of the Frederick Shultz’s case, are some of the themes of the film. Frederick Shultz’s is a New-York dealer who has stolen some Egyptians antiquities with the help of an English restaurant owner. The technique of camouflage will be showed and commented by the journalist of the New-York Times who followed this case.
