IAB in collaboration with MIT Iranian Studies Group and Harvard Agha Khan Chair of Iranian Studies is proud to present this unique film on “Persepolis Recreated” by prize winning Iranian director Mr. Farzin Rezaeian, who will be present for the screening.
The film screening will be followed by a discussion with the director and guest speaker John Prevas, historian and author of the upcoming book Envy of the Gods, the story of the demise of Alexander the Great in the East. Seized and burned by Alexander the Great’s conquering army, shaken by uncounted earthquakes, eroded by 25 centuries of rain, fluctuating temperatures and scouring winds, Persepolis – the greatest of the royal residences of ancient Persia – is a definitive ancient ruin. Even today, those who step up to its gigantic terrace of 125,000 square meters and see its majestic columns are filled with a sense of awe. Persepolis Recreated, through its striking footage and 3-dimensional reconstruction, allows the audience to visualize the beauty and dazzling splendor of Persepolitan palaces before their sad destruction. For the past twenty years, Farzin Rezaeian has researched and written for many educational and documentary films that he has produced or directed at Sunrise Film Productions. John Prevas is an author and professor of Latin and ancient history at Eckerd College, St. Petersburg, Florida. In retracing the route of Alexander the Great, his recent travels have taken him from the ruins of Persepolis in Iran to the deserts of Uzbekistan, the valleys of Pakistan and the mountains of Afghanistan.
