Overview

Greg MacGillivray's documentary Greece: Secrets of the Past marks the latest addition to the tidal wave of IMAX features now available on widescreen DVD (including The Rolling Stones: Live at the Max, Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure, IMAX Space Station, and many others). This forty-minute travelogue unlocks the complexity and majesty of Ancient Greece, via a breathtaking visual exploration of the Greek isles, replete with gorgeous aerial cinematography. The program then tours the relics of antiquity that still linger on the Grecian landscape, including the ruins of the Parthenon and other architectural remnants, while narration on the soundtrack (by My Big Fat Greek Wedding's Nia Vardalos) expostulates on the land's contributions to democratic ideals, science, sculpture, and western politics. As an added bonus, broadly-scaled CGI visuals recreate the Santorini eruption.

    Greece Revealed Through Eye Candy

    The producers of Greece Secrets of the Past transport their audience mainly to both Santorini and Athens. They provide some background information about Ancient Greece so that a modern audience can better relate to the achievements of Ancient Greeks. The aerial photography is simply stunning, especially when the film is viewed on an IMAX screen. The producers use computer-generated imagery with great dexterity to restore the Parthenon and Goddess Athena in all their greatness as contemporaries could admire them on the acropolis in the fifth century BCE. As a narrator, Nia Vardalos makes this journey entertaining. However, Greece Secrets of the Past is ultimately just eye candy compared to Secrets of Archeaology, a six-DVD set about 27 archeological sites. Secrets of Archeaology contains among other destinations several unforgettable journeys to the most remarkable sites of Ancient Greece.
