FILM SCREENING: HEART OF SKY, HEART OF EARTH

FILM SCREENING: HEART OF SKY, HEART OF EARTH

‘Heart of Sky, Heart of Earth’ bridges the gap between the ancient Mayan creation myth, the Popol Vuh and the crises of today, from the haunting ruins of a fallen civilisation to the ceremonies of today’s Maya; from their spirituality to their spirit of resistance.

Where the west has focused on the end of the world, they understand their calendar not as an inevitable prophecy, but as the closing of a circle, as a way to a new beginning. A moving and haunting film with a deep respect for what is Indigenous. Their call is not just for control over their own lives. It is a last call to save the Earth.
