Agora – Hypathia in front of the council

Hypathia must have had a strong personality! Feminists may complain about glass ceiling nowadays, but it was much worse in the past…

Plot synopsis:
“A historical drama set in Roman Egypt, concerning a slave who turns to the rising tide of Christianity in the hope of pursuing freedom while falling in love with his mistress, the famous philosophy and mathematics professor Hypatia of Alexandria.”

Rachel Weisz makes a lovely Hypatia. If they were more people like Hypatia at that time, people understanding the higher value of knowledge over religion and superstition, our civilization would not have regressed into the Middle Age.

Plot:
“In the fourth century, while Egypt was under the Roman Empire, violent religious upheaval in the streets of Alexandria spills over into the city’s famous library. Trapped inside its walls, the brilliant astronomer Hypatia (Rachel Weisz) and her disciples fight to save the wisdom of the ancient world. Among the group are the two men competing for Hypatia’s heart: the witty, privileged Orestes (Oscar Isaac) and Davus (Max Minghella), Hypatia’s young slave, who is torn between his secret love for her and the freedom he knows can be his if he chooses to join the unstoppable surge of the Christians. ”

No CGI there: gorgeous sets were specially built for the movie Agora. I guess Director Alejandro Amenabar had some serious financial support to produce this film.

Agora is quite impressive knowing that they used a real set especially built on Malta to recreate Alexandria, and not the product of CGI tricks.

By the way in case you’re wondering: the Agora (or forum in their Roman equivalent) was an open place of assembly in ancient Greek city-states. We may still find the word as etymon of the word agoraphobia, the fear of critical public situations.

The world changed forever.

Plot:
“A historical drama set in Roman Egypt, concerning a slave who turns to the rising tide of Christianity in the hopes of pursuing freedom while also falling in love with his master, the famous female philosophy professor and atheist Hypatia of Alexandria.”


Director Amenabar was really committed to recreate Alexandria as it was in the past: he even pushed for huge open-air movie sets to be built, instead of relying on CGI.

The movie Agora will be released on December 18, 2009.

Agora Movie Trailer

AGORA

Alexandria, Egypt

391 Anno Domini

The world is going to change forever.

For a woman Hypatia was benefiting from an incredible freedom in this ancient time, though this was played against her at the end… We could say that she was an early feminist, a courageous and intelligent woman whose life was defying the prejudices of her time!

Director Amenabar went to the Island of Malta in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea to film Agora. Huge sets were built for the occasion. So well built, that we will feel like transported back to Antic Egypt!
