[edit] Information

This science documentary is led like a police investigation into pre-Colombian mummies from Chile and Peru, one of whom, RASPAR CAPAC, inspired The Seven Crystal Balls from The Adventures of Tintin by famous Belgian cartoonist Herge. Rascar Capac, the sinister creature featured on Herge's album The Seven Crystal Balls (1948), has left its mark on many generations of readers. To draw it, Herge was probably inspired by a mummy exhibited in the first pre-Columbian exhibition organized by the Brussels Cinquantenaire Museum in 1923. In reality, the mummy Rascar Capac arrived at the Art & History Museum in Brussels in the middle of the 19th century under unknown circumstances. By uncovering the origins of Rascar Capac, the film reveals previously unknown facts about his life, the reasons for his death and even which illnesses he had. The documentary follows the investigation in the field, in specialised laboratories in Belgium and France and along the wild Pacific coast of Chile and Peru. Using modern technology to research and carry out tests on Rascar and other similar mummies will allow us to understand a lot more about these pre-Columbian mummies who, compared to their Egyptian counterparts, we still know very little about. Awarded the Jules Vernes Prize at the Amiens Archeology Film Festival 2020 A Film by Frederic Cordier ; A Co-Production by Un film a la patte, Moulinsart and Panoramique Terre with RTBF and ARTE G.E.I.E.
