This educational documentary presents the evolution of the male human figure during Greek Antiquity: from its early beginnings until the Roman Conquest. It focuses on three periods, archaic, classical and hellenistic, analyzing the transition from the molding of the figure to the depiction of the classical ideal and later to realistic figures.
At the same time, the film studies the social and economical conditions that lead to the development of sculpture in ancient Greek civilization. Considered until today, as one of the most important and characteristic Greek art forms and reflecting in a way, the achievements and the philosophy of the people behind it. As the narration of the film continues, a group of students is searching for its own fresh point of view to the statues of the past.
