“Sacred Shadows of Time” & “The Moche Trail”
March 16th, 2013 (7:00 pm)

  • “Sacred Shadows of Time”
    In 2005 a 12-month solar calendar was discovered at the V Bar V Heritage Site southeast of Sedona using rock art images and shadows cast by two boulders protruding from the cliff face. It is estimated that it was created in the 10th or 11th Century by the Sinagua Culture ofthe Verde Valley. The unanswered question was whether the boulders were natural features or manipulated by the Singua to enhance the effects. In 2011 an archaeological research permit was issued permitting 20 feet of scaffolding to be erected to closely examine the boulders. The discoveries were surprising and very revealing. This documentary captures this research and presents the amazing results.
  • “The Moche Trail”
    Explora Films (Spain) takes us on a journey through the north coast of Peru following the archeological remains of the Moche culture, which thrived from the 1st Century BC to the 6th Century AD. Starting from the colonial city of Trujillo, this documentary reveals to us everything that can be seen along this route covering the desert, the Pacific Ocean, and the Andes. We discover spectacular island landscapes, parched wastelands, forests, inlets, beaches, canyons, and perpetually snowy peaks. We visit cities steeped in history and small villages near the archeological digs, which unveil this mysterious land’s past since the dawn of time.

All films for the the International Archaeology Film Festival will be shown at the Camp Verde Auditorium Theater, 370 Camp Lincoln Road, Camp Verde. For more information or to purchase tickets please visit the International Archaeology Film Festival.
