CIVILIZATIONS
How Do We Look?

 

Civilizations is a new nine-part series that examines human creativity across cultures. The PBS and BBC co-production, narrated by actor Liev Schreiber, tells the story of art from the dawn of human history to the
present day.

 

Inspired by Civilisation, Kenneth Clark’s acclaimed 1969 series about Western art, this epic new series expands the scope globally to reveal the role art and the creative imagination have played across multiple cultures and civilizations. Throughout the series, Civilizations travels across six continents to explore a wealth of treasures created through the entirety of the human experience. State-of-the-art drone and camera movement technology and macro-photography allow viewers to immerse themselves in new ways.

 

How Do We Look?
This episode explores the many functions of the human image in ancient art and the different ways each civilization and era regarded its significance.

Take an excursion through the Hawaiian Islands with Traven, Tehani, and Keakealani, three college students from Hawaii who share a common goal: to harness their enthusiasm for the fields of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math (STEAM), and direct it towards positively shaping their state’s future.
