We went to Egypt, into an adventure full of archaeology and art from the mystic sites of antique Egypt. We started in Cairo, along side of the river Nile to the magnificent temples in the south part of Egypt. We shot the Pyramids in Gizeh and we interviewed the great egyptologist and secretary of the supreme council of antiquities of Egypt, Dr Zahi Hawass. Then we went to shoot the golden mummies of Bahariya and one of the latest discoveries of Dr Hawass; the tomb of Governor Kohns-Euf-Ank, then the white desert with its incredible huge sculptures of white limestone, sculptured within hundreds of years by the wind. Then we went to the mountains, where we filmed the well endured paintings of the tombs of the nomarc princes of the Middle Kingdom. Afterwards we shot in Amarna, the region from Great Pharao Akenaton that together with his queen Nefertiti started a revolution in the religion of this country. We traveled then towards the southern part of Egypt to shoot five of the most incredible temples; temple of Dendera, where Queen Cleopatra the 7th held her rituals, the temple of Ramses the 3rd, the temple od Karnak dedicated to god Amon and the temple Kom-Ombo, the only temple with a double facade, dedicated to the God Zobek and Horus, and the temple of File dedicated to Goddess Isis.
