GREAT ART ON SCREEN The Immortals: The Wonders of the Museo Egizio

February 17 @ 2:00pm-3:30pm


This documentary is a journey among the most beautiful archaeological finds Egypt has left us. Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) is excited to offer the screening of The Immortals: The Wonders of the Museo Egizio, which will take place at the Southern Vermont Arts Center on Saturday, February 17 at 2:00 p.m. Kha, architect and builder of tombs for the pharaohs, must undertake the journey to the Underworld. Telling us the story of his voyage is Jeremy Irons, in the guise of a narrator. His words take us inside the secret world of Egyptian mythology, religion and funerary culture, interweaving the story with the history of the oldest museum in the world, the Museo Egizio in Turin, founded in 1824 and will soon be celebrating its 200th anniversary. In fact, the Kha’s own Tomb is to be found in Turin along with the most complete and most valuable private collection of grave goods outside of Egypt. Tickets are $12 per person. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit greenmtnacademy.org or call our office at 802-867-0111. The Immortals: The Wonders of the Museo Egizio is distributed by New York-based BYExperience.
