Art at the Cinema : Men & Gods
Kha, architect and builder of tombs for the pharaohs, must undertake the journey to the Underworld, amid a thousand dangers.
Eternal life is at stake, but the risk is of ending up dissolved in cosmic nothingness.
Jeremy Irons narrates his adventure in the guise of an ancient storyteller. His words take us into the secret world of Egyptian mythology, religion and funerary culture, blending the tale with the history of Turin's Museo Egizio, founded in 1824 and the oldest in the world.
