Black Sands (trailer)
Point of Air action: Black Sands – a new documentary about Turkmenistan and the deep roots of monotheism. There is a previously unknown Bronze-Age civilization deep in the cobra-infested Kara Kum (Black Sands) Desert in Turkmenistan. Battling sand-storms and intense isolation, archeologist Viktor Sarianidi uncovers a city where the dead were disposed through ritual excarnation and astrologer-priests consumed hallucinogenic ritual drinks over 4,000 years ago. Is it the motherland of Zoroastrianism ~ an ancient Indo-Iranian religion that was later to strongly influence Judaism and hence Christianity and Islam. This place also happens to be the Point of Elemental Air in ALTER MaN 4 7.
