2012 The Mayan Word
2012 The Mayan Word answers questions everyone is asking about the Mayan Prophecies of 2012 and explores our connection to the planet and the cosmos. But who is listening to the Maya? This groundbreaking film from director, Melissa Gunasena, brings us the voices of the Mayan people as they share their perspectives on the prophecies of their ancestors and their fight to defend Mother Earth and their culture from destruction.
2012 The Mayan Word is both a message of hope and a call to action. Featuring testimonies from contemporary Mayans throughout Mesoamerica, from spiritual guides to activists, community leaders, farmers, artists, teachers, and children, this film is an extraordinary journey into the heart of Mayan struggle and spirituality.
