Fifty million stars in our galaxy have the potential of supporting life forms capable of travelling to other planets, says Erich von Daniken, whose film version of his best-selling book, gives stunning visual proof that some form of life from outer space landed on Earth centuries ago.
It took over five years for von Daniken to document, on film, the physical evidence of visits by galactic travellers who came to Earth. Just what they did here and the influences they left behind is the core of the documentary.
In search of basic truths, Chariots of the Gods takes us into the far reaches of underground caves and tombs and to the tops of desolate mountains on every major continent to show the evidence von Daniken has been collecting. Although this controversial documentary film may provide the answers to age old mysteries, it may be the beginning of an entirely new set of questions.
