The Great Pyramid


Documentary Film

Writer/Director: Frauke Finsterwalder
Co-produced by: University of Television and Film Munich

In 2007, a group of young men began planning the largest building in the world - a gigantic pyramid. They envisioned a tomb, 800 meters tall, for the ashes of one billion dead people. People of all nations and faiths, to be built on a field in East Germany. The documentary "The Great Pyramid" features a group of eccentrics who woke up one morning with a huge pyramid-shaped idea, but instead of getting on with their lives they actually decided to see it through. This is the story of their dream, of how they thought they could singlehandedly save the German economy, of people who helped them and people who hated them.
