Abstract:

Blind prophets of Easter Island: Since the Polynesian island's discovery in 1722, the lost, ancient civilization of Easter Island has left a baffling legacy of riddles. Jacques Cousteau and the Calypso crew undertake land and underwater explorations and interview leading experts. Among the questions they tackle: who created the ancient, once-revered giant stone figures? Why do volcanic rock drawings show trees and flowers when virtually none exist today? Why is there evidence of cannibalism in a once peaceful and flourishing society? Clipperton, the island time forgot: Today, the only inhabitants of this environmentally inhospitable Pacific island are birds and crabs. Yet over 80 years ago, Clipperton hosted other visitors: a demented rapist and a terrified group of women and children. Cousteau returns to the island to recreate the deadly series of events: from the death of the brave French captain, to the courage of the widow who killed her torturer, and through the eyes of one of the survivors, then a child.
