“Everyone and everything has a story to tell”… That’s how the film begins, and appropriately so. What we have here is a magnificent story that takes history of humanity back to 12,000 years. What we are looking at is a temple complex so impeccably preserved, and with evidence so clear, that it might as well have been carved yesterday. Göbeklitepe, Şanlıurfa-Turkey. The world’s first temple, dating 12,000 years back.
The film concentrates on scientific data, and throws in expert opinion on matters such as archeology, astronomy, mysticism, religion, and history. This process is covered by interviews with experts close to the project, as well as those who can look at it from a wider angle, as to the whys and hows. Klaus Schmidt (archeologist and head of the Göbelitepe excavation) Metin Bobaroğlu (philosoper and mystic), B.G. Sidharth (astronomer and physicist) are some of them.
