Storyline

This film resides in the cross-section between science-fiction, archaeology and middle-east politics. Combining live motion, computer generated imagery and historical photographs the film explores the role of myth for history, fact and national identity. A narrative resistance group makes underground deposits of elaborate porcelain suggested to belong to an entirely fictional civilization. Their aim is to influence history and support future claims to their vanishing lands.
