AGORA
2009, Newmarket Films, 127 min, Spain, Dir: Alejandro Amenábar

Set in Roman Egypt, 400 A.D., this compelling historical drama follows Hypatia (Rachel Weisz), a Greek woman and mathematician, astronomer and philosopher bravely struggling to save the wisdom of classical antiquity in the midst of religious war. Filming took place on the island of Malta, where production designer Guy Hendrix Dyas re-created large parts of the city on location, further extended with the help of computer-generated imagery. The construction of the main set employed almost 400 people, and was the largest ever built on the island.
