Aziris nuna (2006)

I’m not quite sure what to make of Aziris nuna.  All I really know is that I enjoyed it. An archaeologist learns that an ancient Egyptian stone head at his museum has cracked, revealing something metal inside.  He’s obsessed by stories of ancient aliens, so naturally he suspects that it is a spaceship.
