Originally created for exhibition in IMAX theaters, this DVD release of Greece - Secrets of the Past brings the big-screen beauty and drama of the film to the small screen.

 

Narrator Nia Vardalos (star and writer of My Big Fat Greek Wedding) shows us how Greece shaped both the ancient and modern worlds.  We see buried treasures, the destruction of Santorini (via incredible CGI special affects), famous Greek artists and warriors, and a re-creation of the Parthenon (again through CGI) as special effects build the gigantic golden statue of Athena right before our eyes.  This special edition DVD also features a "Making Of" documentary, video montage and soundtrack, movie trivia quiz, Greek timeline and other features.

 

This special edition features

  • Widescreen Version in English and French Dolby Digital 5.1

  • "Making of" Documentary

  • Video Montage and Soundtrack

  • MacGillvray Freeman Short Retrospective

  • Movie Trivia Quiz, Greek Timeline, Learn more and Trailers

  • Bonus DTS English Audio Version* (*requires the use of a DTS decoder)

 

For producing a superbly made film that is both educational and entertaining for the whole family, The Parents Television Council™ is proud to award MacGillivary Freeman Films' Greece—Secrets of the Past with the Entertainment Seal of Approval™.
