Calendars, Cults and Cultures

Kalender, Kulte und Kulturen

What do we really know about the historical relationship between humans and the cosmos? It has always been to some extent a religious relationship and beliefs were usually exterminated along with ancient knowledge. What remains are small remnants, such as the Maya calendar, which reveals amazing things even without its famous expiration date in December 2012. This documentary covers a wide range of aspects, revealing worldwide phenomena: From calendar stones to the stone lines of Carnac in Brittany to the seasonal traditions of Christians, Egyptians and Chinese to participation in a pagan fertility ceremony in the imposing stone circle at Avebury in the South of England.
