Abstract:

Based on the most up-to-date- research and the latest archeological discoveries, and combining extensive location scouting with dramatic reconstruction and state-of-the-art CGI, Building the Great Pyramid raises the representation of the ancient past onto a completely new level. It does not just tell us how and why the most extraordinary of all human monuments was built- it shows us. And it does this by following a young Egyptian man, Nahkt, who is conscripted from his village to work on the great pyramid and works his way up the ranks to a senior overseer.
