Editorial Reviews

REIGN OF THE JAGUAR is a film about the Maya's culture, ceremonies, rituals and events, seen through their eyes today. It is not a story with a typical beginning, middle and end. It was filmed on location in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula in the Mayan's language, with English narration. The film also deals with the Mayan viewpoint on the year 2012, and the coming together of the Maya and Aztec. The music is all original Mayan music recorded by Xavier Quijas Yxayotl, who performed his hand made replica instruments dating back 2000 years, using no artificial electronic musical sound.

Ed Breeding has gone into the depths of the Mayan landscape to create a breath taking visual feast. His ability to communicate and gain the trust of these graceful, intelligent people, enough for them to share private traditions and ceremonies that few outsiders have ever seen, gives this documentary a special insight that offers the viewer a real treat into a cultural history long destroyed by "civilization". This film is not only educational, it really is a gift to the viewer to see actual ceremonial regalia from jaguar skins, snake skins, turquoise, gold paint, feathers and many other sacred props used to honor their way of life. Sit back and enjoy the wonderful colors of the Mayan people, let your mind get carried away by this powerful display of human beauty and trust in mother earth. You won't want to miss this film, especially if you have an interest in the Mayan culture. Another magnificent gift of creation from Mr. Breeding!

This film seemed to be naturally shot. By that meaning using natural light, the Sun and torches, which gave it an organic setting. Brilliant!

Although, I liked this video, I understand and speak some Spanish. I loved the beautifully done costumes and headdresses for this video. The storyline was very interesting. I liked seeing the story from an indigenous perspective. I did find the English narrator did not always catch what was spoken, and sometimes the Spanish language was used instead of Quechua. I would recommend this especially for those that live in cold winter places as a chance to see a vibrant story unfold in a tropical setting.
