The Second Moment of Creation - Films on Demand

Episode 1


The first film in the series looks at the role that art and creative imagination has played in the forging of humanity itself. We attempt to define what civilization is—by identifying what it isn’t. We look at the story of the first marks made 80,000 years ago and chart the first flowering of art in the West. We see Petra—a city carved into rock—and uncover the mysterious and astonishing masks of Sanxingdui in China, before we explore how civilizations rise and fall. © Infobase
