——-A brief description of the film and the filmmaker——-

Drawing on historical and archeological evidence, this fascinating documentary by Dr. Farzin Rezaeian reconstructs 7,000 years of Iranian history. Produced by the makers of Persepolis Recreated, the film’s advanced animation techniques bring ancient wonders to life, giving an unprecedented look at Iran’s historical and cultural achievements.

In his accompanying book, Rezaeian has reconstructed the major monuments from seven key periods in Iranian history, bringing to life the settings in which Iranian civilization developed and the context through which the greatest figures of Iranian history, from Cyrus the Great (the Achaemenid Emperor) to Shah Abbas (the Safavid King), can be understood.

The package, available for purchase during the event, includes a Persian/English narrative book and DVD film, showcasing Iran’s art and architectural heritage with excellent graphic reconstructions superimposed on the actual architectural remains from 4000 B.C. to the 17th century A.D.

Farzin Rezaeian is an award-winning documentarian and educational film producer and director. He studied sociology, political science and communications at the University of Illinois in Chicago. For the past twenty years he has researched and written for many educational and documentary films that he has produced or directed.
