Dinner before the presentation starting at 5:30pm. Ticket prices: Student: $4; Senior: $6; Adult: $7; Family: $15. This film begins by exploring the achievements of the ancient Maya by visiting fabled places like El Mirador, Tikal and Yaxha. It examines the historic tension between Mayan traditions and Spanish colonialism, using the religious pageantry of Antigua’s Easter Week celebration to provide a cinematic backdrop for the fascinating conversation. It documents contemporary Mayan culture in Lake Atitlan where weavers spin cotton by hand and rely on the natural dyes and back strap looms to create world-class textiles.
