In 2005, filmmaker Keith Busha found himself drawn to Italy to view and film the art of a unique, largely unknown community. After many trips and much research, the self-proclaimed road weary skeptic opened his eyes and mind to the wonders of this enlightened and innovative community. This film, originally about art, became a multilayered journey into the heart of a new and growing civilization that must be seen to be believed.

Directed by Keith Busha in 2009, this 66-minute documentary explores the enormous complex of subterranean, art-filled temples hand-dug in the foothills of the Alps in northern Italy, 50 kilometres from Turin, in the valley of Valchiusella.
The temples were created under the direction of Oberto Airaudi who, having claimed visions of ancient temples at age 10 from a previous life, began excavation and building in August 1978.
By 1991 most of the chambers were reportedly complete when Italian police, acting on a tip from villagers, conducted a raid on the Temples.
However, since the temples were so well hidden, police were unable to locate them until state prosecutor Bruno Tinti threatened to dynamite the entire hillside.
Eventually the Italian government reportedly gave them retroactive excavation and erection privileges and the Temples are now open to visitors.
It is an amazing and thought-provoking documentary.
