Global Week: Heart of Sky, Heart of Earth
Thursday, November 14th, 2013. 17:30 - 19:00
This movie screening is a part of The University of Gothenburgs Global Week.
The ancient Maya believed this present world would end and a new cycle arise after 5125 years. How does the story end? Does the water change color? Do the oceans collapse? Does the sky fall as the last tree is cut?
HEART OF SKY, HEART OF EARTH allows the Maya of today to answer, following six young Maya in Guatemala and Chiapas through their daily and ceremonial life, revealing their determination to resist the destruction of their culture and environment. As corporations go to the ends of the earth to extract all value, all resources, they put forth a wholly indigenous perspective in their own words, without narration. Each story touches upon a facet of the current global crisis.
The Society of International Affairs in Gothenburg welcomes you to a free film screening, open for everyone! After the screening we will go to a nearby pub to hang out and discuss the movie.
