Summary: This much-honored animated film employs authentic imagery from ancient Maya ceramics to create a riveting depiction of the Popol Vuh, the Maya creation myth. Similar to the Biblical story of Genesis in its breadth, scope, and themes, the Popol Vuh is the origin of many myths and beliefs that spread throughout North America and formed the foundation of most Native American religious, philosophical, and ethical beliefs.The film introduces the Maya and relates the entire tale, beginning with the creation of the world and concluding with the victory of the Hero Twins over the evil lords of the Underworld.There are logical stopping places at quarter-hour intervals to facilitate viewing by younger students. See also "The Five Suns: A Sacred History of Mexico" by the same filmmaker.
Other Names: Amlin, Patricia, director.
