Short description

In the Dark Ages, the light shone in Al-Andalus. It was under this light that one of the most magnificent monuments of the world, the Alhambra emerged. This is the story of the men who dreamed it, designed it and built it, as they strove to achieve the formula for perfect beauty. Much has been written about the Alhambra in Granada, but not much is known about the history of the building itself. We want to bring life to these beautiful walls, discover who built them, how and why they created it. And at the same time, to deepen our knowledge of the whole conception of life of the Granada kingdom and the Nazrid society, to highlight an extraordinary period in history when Islamic culture was a synonym for science, poetry, knowledge and innovation. This is a portrayal of a forgotten and transcendent chapter of European history, the Silicon Valley of the 13-14th Centuries, the most innovative and advanced civilization of its time, making significant contributions in Mathematics, Engineering, Agriculture and Arts that had a lasting impact on our culture and will continue to do so for generations to come...The narrator of this adventure will be Ibn al-Jatib, chronicler, poet, scientist, philosopher and Prime Minister, a Renaissance man before the Renaissance, and one of the most important yet little-known intellectual figures of the 14th century in the Iberian Peninsula. From his desk in the Diwan al-Insa, in the Alhambra complex, he'll guide us through the story of the building.

Expectations

To get a clearer picture of the international funds investing in new media projects, how they work, and to get in contact with the key people working in them in order to have a better understanding of the international framework to complete our financial plan and design a more efficient distribution strategy.

How innovative is the project

“The builders of the Alhambra” is an immersive transmedia hybrid documentary experience attractive for both Eastern and Western audiences, blending learning with entertainment. It includes a TV/feature documentary, a web documentary, a videogame, two mobile apps to be used during a visit to the monument, a book, and a marketing campaign based in social media, and real life events produced in the Alhambra. This is an ambitious and innovative project designed to connect a high cultural content with a mainstream audience, and to explore the uses of an audiovisual work with a physical space.
