KOCH Vision Presents
Port Washington, NY (August, 2005) – This October, KOCH Vision will bring to DVD Secrets of Angels, Demons & Masons, a must-have companion to the novels of Dan Brown. Based on Dan Burstein and Arne de Keijzer’s best-selling book, Secrets of Angels & Demons, this two-part documentary investigates the Illuminati and the Freemasons, two mysterious organizations central to Dan Brown’s novel Angels & Demons and his upcoming sequel to The Da Vinci Code. Secrets of Angels, Demons & Masons will be available in stores on October 4 for a suggested retail price of $19.98.
Produced by Hidden Treasures Productions, narrated by Tony Award-winning actor John Cullum and featuring the research of Dan Burstein and the Secrets team, Secrets of Angels, Demons & Masons is the definitive guide to discovering where fact and fiction merge and diverge in Dan Brown novels. Interweaving evocative archives and related commentary by world-renowned experts, the documentary takes the viewer on a suspenseful journey from baroque Rome to historic Washington DC. Part One, Secrets of Angels & Demons, explores the mysterious Illuminati, the intrigues of the Vatican and the age old conflict between science and religion. Part Two, Secrets of Masons, uncovers the secrets of Freemasonry, its hidden past and its surprising role in the founding of America.
Secrets of Angels, Demons & Masons bonus DVD features include 20 minutes of additional interview footage that provides further exploration of topics covered in the documentary. Experts discuss the Dan Brown phenomenon, why Dan Brown’s novels are so popular, and why he is able to capture the interest of such a large group of people. They also delve into the popularity of conspiracy theories and the longstanding tension between science and religion that captures the interest of both Dan Brown and the public at large.
Leading up to the DVD premiere of Secrets of Angels, Demons & Masons, Sterling Publishing will release Secrets of the Widow’s Son (on sale 9/15/05), a fascinating journey into the world of Dan Brown’s forthcoming book, The Solomon Key. Featuring an introduction by Dan Burstein, Secrets of the Widow’s Son examines the stew of mysteries, alternative histories, theological debates, secret societies, scientific and technological issues, art works, conspiracy theories, myths and occult knowledge that are likely to inhabit The Solomon Key. Author David Shugarts and the team behind The New York Times bestselling Secrets of the Code lead the reader along a thought-provoking and ultimately shocking trail of clues, codes, symbols, unsolved mysteries and long-forgotten history.
