Plot
The documentary was shot in the Republic of Turkmenistan between the ancient Oxus (Amu Dar'ya) and Jaxartes (Syr-Dar'ya) rivers, south-east of the Caspian Sea and north of Persia and Afghanistan, in a journey that lasted two months. Through the archaeological finds, the sand and the stones, the legends, the songs and the forgotten images, the film attempts to recapture the historic meeting of Greek civilisation with the peoples of the Orient. Turkmenistan lies at the cross-roads of the most ancient civilisation on earth. In the Kara-Kum (Black Sands) Desert and on the mountain range of Kopet-Dag that stretches from Caspia to India, the film crew came across the ruins of proto-Zoroastrian temples, the birthplace of Zarathustra, ancient Parthia of the Arsacid dynasty and its capital, Nysa, the mythical city of Dionysus. The supreme moment in this captivating documentary, the camera meeting the people. The faces of the Nokhurli, who believe that they are the most ancient inhabitants of Turkmenia bear traces from the passage of history and their souls the deeply rooted conviction that they are descended from Alexander the Great.
