On The Rocks3 x 52' HD
A being with a cube-shaped skull, like an astronaut’s helmet sprouting long antennas linked together with filaments, and without feet, nor legs. This picture does not come from some visionary artist’s canvas but it is drawn in the Utah desert. Here, as in many other incredible natural spots, awesome drawings have been carved on the rocks thousands of years ago. And for the first time on television, two big authorities on the subject are to take us on a journey around the world, to unravel the mystery around those signs. American paleontologist, Paul Bahn, and Jean-Loïc Le Quellec, Research Director at France’s CNRS, will retrace the history of these signs as well as search for their meaning, combining shrewd observations with humor. They will deal with the beautiful signs found in Nine Mile Canyon (USA), the Pedra Furada (Brazil), and the fabulous cliff of Huashan (China). Thanks to cutting-edge CGI, the drawings will be exported and animated in order to illustrate clearly for the viewer the possible interpretations. Through hypothesis and experimentation, the viewer will feel closer to the mindset and world of our remote ancestors.
