Sergio Castellitto’s narration guides us through the magical history of 3D cinema. A story full of marvels and ideas, about the rise and fall of visionary people who, with not much technical ability but with a great deal of inventiveness, followed the dream of going beyond the surface of the screen to embody images in three dimensions. Many years before Avatar and digital techniques, such names as Louis Lumie`re, Alfred Hitchcock, Paul Morrissey and many others grappled with 3D cinema. This documentary follows its history in a thrilling and scrupulous archeological research that brings back to life a forgotten heritage of films, passions, and cinema histories.

DIRECTOR'S NOTES:
To trace the history of 3D cinema was a plunge into a world of dreamers, inventors, and visionaries. An adventure that started from the experiments of the fathers of the seventh art and leads us into a carousel of highs and lows lasting over a century.
