What do the Maya really say about 2012? Is the world going to end on December 21, 2012? Learn more from the most famous Maya in the world, 1992 Nobel Peace Laureate Rigoberta Menchu Tum of Guatemala, and her Mayan elders. Filmed over a period of five years, this 50 minute documentary film takes you deep into the Guatemalan highlands, where a small group of elders have preserved the traditions of the ancient Mayas, passing this deep knowledge down from generation to generation in an unbroken lineage of over 2,000 years. Interviews with The Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and leading scientists are included in this fascinating and funny film. Find out what we do NOT need to worry about, and the five things we can all do to best survive in these hectic times.
