The obelisk odyssey

The two lives of the Luxor/La concorde Obelisk

Documentary 52 mn

Directed by Olivier Lemaitre

Musique Pierre Estève

“The Obelisk Odyssey” intersects the two lives of the obelisk (an ancient building under Ramses II and a monument in Paris), focusing as much on its architecture as on the actors in its history. In Egypt, we will discover from Aswan to Luxor the path of the obelisk with the lighting of researchers. Several 3D animations explain the archaeological theories on the construction of the temple and the movement of the obelisk.
