Christiane Desroches Noblecourt, une passion égyptienne

Director Olga Prud’homme Farges

Running time  52′


Through her memories, it is a long life of passions and fights which takes shape in this film.

Her discovery of Egyptology, her engagement in French Resistance during world war II , her  fight to save the Temples of Nubia, fight which she will gain in 1960 thanks to the assistance of UNESCO, are as many chapters as Christiane Desroches Noblecourt tells us.

It is her also which, in 1967, will make the frenchs discover the treasure of Toutankhamon during an exhibition that she will set, her still who will organize the rescue the mummy of Ramsès II threatened of rotting.

Her always, who, in 1998, will battle so that the obelisk of the Place of the Concorde is again crowned of its golden pyramidion.

Woman, pionnier, untiring, narrator, captivating, Christiane Desroches Noblecourt did not finish astonishing us and alluring us.
