Invading the Persian Empire from Macedonia (now part of Greece), Alexander the Great led his armies across the Mediterranean to Egypt, then east to India.
The focus of this film will be on Hephaestion’s eight-year campaign and his friendship with his childhood best friend and battle partner, Hephaestus. Alexander was only 33 when he died of an illness. He was a young man. Many of the barriers to Roman expansion were knocked down by Alexander’s conquests, which paved the way for Greek culture to spread across the Mediterranean (and, centuries later, Christianity). If not for Alexander’s brutal, but ultimately unifying conquest, our world today may not have existed.
