[edit] Information

Seized and burned by Alexander the Great's conquering army, shaken by uncounted earthquakes, eroded by 25 centuries of rain, fluctuating temperatures and scouring winds, Persepolis, the greatest of the royal residences of ancient Persia is a definitive ancient ruin.

Yet the place remains an awesomely impressive sight 2,500 years after it was built. Even today, those who step up to its gigantic terrace of 125,000 square meters and see its majestic columns are filled with a sense of awe drifting into a dream-like trance. A dream in which one tries to visualize the beauty and dazzling splendor of Persepolitan places before their sad destruction.

"Persepolis Recreated” is the name of this beautiful documentary film by Mr. Farzin Rezaian. See Persepolis as it was 2500 years ago. Starting with the work of the German scholar Friedrich Krefter, who spent decades creating a model for a reconstructed Persepolis, film maker Farzin Rezaian and his team have produced this documentary which presents a virtual reconstruction of parts of the Persepolis palace complex. The film that includes commentaries by many of the leading authorities on Achaemenid architecture and history, brings to life and reveals the splendour of the Persepolitan palace complex before its destruction by Alexander.

This is the first successful attempt to reveal the magnificence of Persepolitan palaces as they were 2500 years ago.Persepolis is no longer in grey; recreated in colour as it was in its splendour. Throughout the film, renowned scholars from France, U.S.A. and Iran have also commented on the splendor and the function of Persepolitan palaces, including Prof. Richard Frye (Harvard University) , Prof. A Shapur Shahbazi (Eastern Oregon University) and Prof. Remi Boucharlat (CNRS, France).
