Saving Abu Simbel

Language: Silent film

In an unparalleled feat of engineering, the rock temple was taken apart and re-erected on a site sixty metres higher and further away from the Nile. This silent movie shows some of the challenges the team of experts had to deal with.

This footage was later used in the movie The World Saves Abu Simbel, (available here)
