The life and work of acclaimed archeologist Dr. Marija Gimbutas serve as the subjects of this documentary narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Olympia Dukakis. Few archeologists have ever achieved quite the level of fame, or courted quite as much controversy, as the Lithuanian-born mythology and linguistics who dared to develop theories that challenged the "establishment" of her time. By unearthing evidence of goddess-worshipping civilizations throughout pre-historic "Old Europe," Dr. Gimbutas highlighted the importance of critical thinking while influencing an entire generation of feminists, scholars, and social thinkers. In this film, experts like Carol Christ, Margaret Conkley, Vikki Nobel, and Patricia Reis all offer their opinions on why the discoveries that Dr. Gimbutas made during her lifetime as still as relevant today as they were when she was still traveling the world in search of answers to our true origins.
