Event Description

Documentary:  Heart Of Sky, Heart Of Earth

The Mayans of Central America are facing many atrocities in their communities: recently a 2,300 year old Mayan pyramid in Belize was destroyed by a construction company for road fill; the second largest largest gold mine in in the world operated by Vancouver based Goldcorp in Guatemala spews its toxicity on the indigenous population nearby; their sacred indigenous corn is facing fierce competition from cheap, heavily subsidized GMO corn imported from the US; their economy is being undermined and destroyed by NAFTA. Heart of Sky, Heart of Earth follows the daily and ceremonial lives of six articulate young Maya as they struggle to protect their culture, environment and traditional economy. Using breathtaking cinematography this film tells the stories of these activists in their own words using Mayan myths and legends on creation and the role of mankind to underscore their determination to save the Maya and maybe all of us from destruction. These committed activists see what is happening in the world today as no different to what happened to the Mayans when their civilization collapsed, and their goal is to preserve the lessens learned to save their culture and way of life.

I was profoundly affected by this film and will carry many of its images with me to the end of my days." Allen J. Christenson, Author of Popul Vuh: The Sacred Book of the Maya
