Risen from ashes

Documentary film concept

About this project

Several decades ago many cities and numerous cultural sites fell victim to the bombs. The documentary series tells the story of revival, showing how the ruins turned into irreplaceable architectural gems. Each episode brings to light the names of heroes in post-war period and their exploits in painstaking restoration of Berlin, Hamburg, Tokyo, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, London, Rotterdam, Warsaw, Stalingrad and other cities that suffered the most damage during WWII. The viewer will travel through time, learn about ingenious reconstruction works and the heated arguments of architects, as well as engineering and construction features. We will use CGI- and VFX-technologies to recreate the cities at the time of their maximum destruction and show how they have become again top tourist destinations.
