In 1923 Cecil B. DeMille made a silent version of The Ten Commandments. He shot the film in nearby Guadalupe and built a huge City of the Pharaoh set. When filming wrapped, the whole city mysteriously vanished! In 1982, Peter Brosnan heard a rumor that there might be ancient Egyptian sphinxes buried somewhere in the dunes which sparked his imagination, so he embarked on what turned out to be a 30-year battle to prove the existence of, and to unearth, pieces of these long-buried sphinxes. This is the story of a pioneer filmmaker and one man’s journey as he navigates through archaeology, local politics, and disappearing film history. 89 min. USA.
