The Lost Gods


Ireland. 2005. 50mins

In a time when tyrants and theocracies still exist, when religions veer towards fundamentalism and live under threat of extinction from scientific discovery and the rise of materialism – The Lost Gods is a timely documentary series that explores the religions that once lorded over vast and powerful empires, wonders at their distinctive cultures, art and architecture and details their destruction. Peeling away the layers of time, each episode looks at the lost cities and ancient shrines dedicated to six of the world’s major lost civilisations: The Egyptians, The Greeks, The Romans, The Maya, The Inca and The Celts. The festival will screen 2 episodes of this extraordinary work, The Maya and The Celts (in Irish with English subtitles). The event will be followed by a workshop on the production.
