This documentary film by Kevin Anderson of the University of Massachusetts approaches contemporary Pompeii through an ethnographic lens, exploring the range of reasons tourists have for visiting the site while giving voice to those who interpret, maintain and study the ancient Roman city. What is unearthed exposes not only a disjuncture between the modern city surrounding the archaeological park and the site itself, but also the fragile state of the city “frozen in time.”
