    • Synopsis
    • This extraordinary film depicts the events of an archeological expedition from the 1920s, on the tracks of the elephas falconeri - a dwarf elephant, a creature that existed but is nonetheless reminiscent of the legendary Cyclops. Theodore Kracklite found the creature’s fossilised skulls in the undersea caverns of Sicily. The film revisits the well-known myth from Homer’s « Iliad », which grows to the rank of a metaphor of the modern ecological crisis and serves as a reminder of the massive exctinction of species.
