To mark the centenary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, Behind the Mask of Tutankhamun. A living Exhibition offers spectators, for the first time ever, an extraordinary opportunity to meet the Pharaoh, and relive those unique moments on the big screen following exclusive coverage of how 150 items from among his treasures, were moved to become part of the biggest international exhibition ever dedicated to the Golden Boy. The documentary develops as a continuous dialogue of cross-references between the far-off past when the pharaoh was alive, more recent times which saw the discovery of his Tomb by archaeologist Howard Carter in 1922, and the present day with exhibitions and studies dedicated to Ancient Egypt. Much will be revealed through high-resolution photographs by Sandro Vannini, one of the most prolific photographers of Tutankhamun’s treasures, which consist of over 5400 objects.
