Editorial Reviews

"Mayan Renaissance" is a feature length film which documents 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. This elegant, beautiful, and thought
provoking film will share their vision for the future, their call for a long-foretold renaissance of Maya
culture and wisdom, and their 100 year plan to lead humanity forward, from the year 2012 on. The film stars 1992 Nobel Peace Laureate and Maya leader Rigoberta Menchu Tum. All of the
images, voices, expert commentary and music in the film come directly
from Central America, from the heart of the Mayan world.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This documentary really blew me away! With all the 2012 nonsense going on right now, I admittedly was not the most thrilled to watch this movie. But as I began to watch, I saw an untold story of the past, present, and future of the Mayan people. I grew up in Central America and learned so much watching this film.

I actually loved this movie so much I shared it with my church. We do mission trips to Guatemala every summer. We screened it at our church and had all of the young people that have gone or are interested in going to Guatemala watched it. Those that had never been were more impassioned to go than ever before, and those who had already been kept saying how much they learned and how this movie challenged some of the beliefs that they had held about Mayan culture.

A really great documentary and I can't wait to see the other ones that the PeaceJam foundation will be putting out over the years! You've got a fan in me!

Mayan renaissance is an intriguing one hour nine minutes documentary bringing into limelight the forgotten ancient Maya civilization and their fight for freedom and finally their emergence from all the sufferings. It is a beautifully woven script which reflects both beauty as well as heart wrenching happenings about their civilization.
I have learnt in history that one of the fascinating things about them is their extraordinary skill to establish a great civilization in a tropical rainforest climate unlike other civilizations where ancient people had flourished in drier climates. This thought provoking and comprehensive film shares Mayans vision for their future as well as their 100-year plan to lead civilization forward from 2012 on. The entire mood of the film can be understood in a very easy manner. The movie also covers the birth of the Mayan led political party in Guatemala. This film surely can help those interested in understanding the Mayan culture on a deeper level.
It definitely is a must see movie as it would surely challenge some of the beliefs possessed about Mayan culture before watching this documentary. I am looking forward to see the other movies that the PeaceJam foundation will be coming up with!

Very thought provoking film. I must say that I found the 'newsreel' section very informative as well. The historical and political views were particulary interesting.

I've spent a lot of my leisure time reading about history, mostly ancient and religious history. Discovering the story of the Mayans was such a revelation to me; understanding what they believe and why they believe it. I was spurred to learn more about the Mayan history, being that we are on the cusp of December 21, 2012. This movie was exactly what I needed. It is Very intelligent, informative, well crafted documentary, very detailed and easy to understand.

I would recommend this video for those wanting to understand the Mayan culture on a deeper level; this is definitely the documentary to chose. It presents almost the same information as "Cracking the Maya Code", but a much more comprehensive, detailed study.

Out of all the information that's out there I thought this film was the most unified. It combined facts from Mayan history in an easy to understand way and streamlined it into our present and future. The real talk from the Mayan people as well as Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu really put a face and voice to the prophecies the Mayans predicted. I appreciate the message a lot and am going to pass it on to friends and family in place of me preaching about our path of ignorance and destruction :)
