MARIB is a wordless trip to the city of the same name in Yemen, which lies side by side with the ruins of its Sabaean forerunner from antiquity. The desert dust wraps the archaeologists, craftsmen and farmers in a mystical veil, which the editing and the virtuous pictures transform into a real documentary fresco.
