In 520 B.C., King Darius I of the Achamenids turned a 40-acre terrace at the foot of Kuh-e-Rahmat (the Mount of Mercy) into the world's most magnificent city. Utilizing architects, craftsman and artists from his vast three-continent empire, he created the new capital of the Persian empire. This fascinating documentary reconstructs the imposing site, rebuilding it virtually with a complex animation program, to provide rich details into this feat of engineering genius, as well as the daily lives of its inhabitants. 2008/color/60 min/NR/fullscreen.
