Apocalypse! | 1999
Documentary that traces the origins of the Bible's Book of Revelation and how it has shaped Western ideas of the apocalypse, evoking images of doom and destruction, judgment and fear, death and hell. Yet, it also speaks of trial, deliverance and hope -- at least for those who prevail. The program examines the changing ideas of the apocalypse across the span of 2500 years to understand how these ideas evolved and how they are expressed in modern times.
