In modern Deir el-Madinah, located near Luxor in upper Egypt, extremely rare vestiges of a Egyptian city from the time of the Pharaohs have been found. Kha, Sennedjem, Pached, Nakhtamon, and Inerkhaoui lived here with their families, over 3,000 years ago, at the time of New Kingdom.

Members of an elite craftsman's guild, they built, carved, and painted all the monumental tombs in the Valley of the Kings and Queens: extraordinary masterpieces which no living eyes we supposed to see, often their own.

This film by Jerome Prieur (Corpus Christi, Origin of Christianity, Vercingetorix, Awaking Apollo, etc.) shows us how these artists and craftsmen worked, and even ventures to describe their daily lives.

It gives us an exceptional opportunity to explore their own small, decorated tombs. Their mementoes and belongings, now in collections in the Louvre, the Egyptian Museum in Turin, and in Cairo are contextualized in such a way as to bring these ancient personalities to life.
