A new feature length documentary film, “Mayan Renaissance”, treats “the glory of the ancient Maya civilization, the Spanish conquest in 1519, five hundred years of oppression, and the courageous fight of the Maya to reclaim their voice and determine their own future, in Guatemala and throughout Central America.”

The film features Rigoberta Menchu Tum, 1992 Nobel Peace Laureate and Maya leader, and all of the images, voices, expert commentary, and music in the film “come directly from Central America, from the heart of the Mayan world.” There will be a special screening of “Mayan Renaissance” this Sunday in Arvada, Colorado, home of the PeaceJam Foundation which was instrumental in the film’s production.

“Mayan Renaissance” premiered last May at the United Nations during the “World Forum on Indigenous Issues” on May 16th. It will be shown this Sunday, July 1st, at 4:00 pm, in Olde Town Arvada at the Elks Lodge at 5700 Yukon Street, hosted by The Film Festival of Colorado. Director Dawn Engle and Executive Producer Ivan Suvanjieff will be there for a Q & A after the film. Tickets are only $8, see you there!
