Beyond the Golden Compass: The Magic of Philip Pullman
Take a behind-the-scenes look at a world filled with secret codes and magical symbols in this documentary that searches for the hidden meanings in author Philip Pullman's best-selling fantasy novel The Golden Compass. Lyra's world is a parallel universe in which each person is guided by their animal daemon, and where great beauty masks fathomless evil. Follow along as historians, experts, and even the Philip Pullman himself offer a guided tour of this wondrous realm while computer generated animation and rare archival footage turn fantasy into reality right before your very eyes. Other materials featured in this program include a special slide show with Jean Pierre Isbouts and a walking interview with Darkness Visible: Inside the World of Philip Pullman author Nicholas Tucker. This documentary is not authorized or endorsed by New Line Cinema, or in any way associated with the film or the His Dark Materials line of books. The author himself authorized his participation in the program. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
