Mesmerising Mayan culture and stoicism
5 November 2018 | by andreelestrangeSee all my reviews

This is a beautifully filmed and sensitively told story of the clash of Mayan culture, economic exploitation and the End of Days in the Mayan Calendar, filmed by Europeans in a sensitive and non-intrusive manner. Six Mayan individuals tell their stories about their culture, and their fears for the survival of that culture under the brutal regimes that push them aside with no concern for their welfare or their future. One woman talks about the collapse of the local economy when Monsanto starts selling GM corn at a lower price than the local corn, so that poor locals buy the cheaper corn, destroying income for the farmers, who leave, as they cannot survive economically any more...and the immigration or refugee road is very dangerous. culture and religion are weaved in and out of the stories, and its a fulfuliing view - not of outsiders looking down,- but insiders explaining and wondering if all first world countries, like Canada, are ' assassinos' just like the USA.
