The documentary “The Dark side of Da Vinci” lays bare the principle enigmas and secrets of the best-selling novel, and shines an illuminating light on what is really behind it all. This is achieved from a politically correct – and respectfully independent -- perspective. It addresses, among other things, the following questions: Did Jesus actually wed Mary Magdalene? Are their descendents still living? Is the Church an organization born with the mission of hiding the truth about Jesus? Was it really the Roman emperor Constantine who decided to “promulgate” the idea of a mortal man to the status of God? What exactly is the Priory of Zion? Or the Cult of the Goddess?
There are impacting testimonies by many experts and well-known figures from various religions. Among the non-Spanish participants are, among others, Elizabeth Lev, an art historian, Amy Welburn, the author of "De-Coding Da Vinci", Michel Rougé, Head Administrator of Saint-Sulpice and Raphaela Schmid, the Managing Director of the Beckett Institute. Spanish collaborators included Jewish scholars, such as the Managing Director of Sefard-Israel, Shay Schemer, Protestants, such as César Vidal, Catholics such as Cristina López-Schlichting, art experts, such Balbina Capiró, and historians, such as Luis Suárez of the Spanish Royal Academy of History.
