Bent Winebrenner – Guatemala, Land of the Maya
The Walker Lecture Series presents “Bent Winebrenner – Guatemala, Land of the Maya”.
Guatemala is a land of amazing natural and cultural diversity that is just beginning to emerge from the shadow of a long civil war. A high-definition and beautiful travelogue. This film 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.
An excursion to Lake Atitlan shows Mayan culture where weavers spin cotton by hand and rely on natural dyes and backstrap looms to create world-class textiles. This documentary provides important context for understanding and exploring the fascinating Land of the Maya.
This is a Free event.
