This film is like a portal that takes viewers to an amazing city that lies outside of time and space — Matera, one of the oldest and most unusual towns in Italy . Now, this fascinating city is on the UNESCO's world heritage list. Matera lies at the heart of an extremely fascinating region — the image of the city with dwellings perched on the edge of a steep ravine has always attracted filmmakers. Many movies were filmed in Matera, from “The Gospel According to St. Matthew” by Pier Paolo Pasolini to “The Passion of the Christ” by Mel Gibson. It is not surprising that “No Time to Die”, the 25th episode of the official James Bond saga, was also shot here.
Filmmakers tell the story of the city from its paleolithic past to modern revival, which began in the 1970s and made Matera a thriving destination for artists and culture lovers from all over the world. The viewers will be joined by architects, builders, guides and locals residents and together they will walk along the streets untouched by time, hear amazing stories told by stones, and see unique capillary drainage system since has been there since the beginning of time.
