Creators: The Past is an upcoming Italian fantasy film written by Piergiuseppe Zaia and Eleonora Fani, directed by Piergiuseppe Zaia and starring Gérard Depardieu, Bruce Payne, Eleonara Fani, Marc Fiorini, Jennifer Mischiati and William Shatner.
The film provides a fictional explanation as to why the Mayan prophecy did not come to pass. As the end of the year 2012 arrives, the universe is about to undergo an extraordinary planetary alignment. A total eclipse will soon be visible from the planet Earth bringing with it profound vibrational changes.
The eight members of the Galactic Council, headed by Lord Ogmha, gather to discuss the effects of the coming alignment. The Galactic Council regulates the stability of the universe. Each of the members of the Galactic Council is a "Creator" governing their own planet.
Following an accident, the Galactic Council lose control of an object which contains a recording of the entire history and the memories of humanity. Consequently, they entrust a girl with the task of locating the object.
