Please join One Equal Heart and Seattle Preparatory High School for the screening of Heart of Sky, Heart of Earth, an award-winning documentary set in Chiapas and Guatemala.
Much was made of the Mayan calendar's supposed prophesy of the end of the world. But what lies behind this myth?
HEART OF SKY, HEART OF EARTH is a stunningly beautiful, award-winning film featuring the powerful voices of six Mayans from Chiapas, México and Guatemala who invite us into their daily and ceremonial lives and share a wholly indigenous perspective about the current global crisis.
This screening benefits One Equal Heart Foundation, a Seattle-based nonprofit that partners with the Center for Indigenous Rights and Tseltal Maya indigenous communities in Chiapas, México, to support locally-led programs that create healthy families, healthy communities and a healthy planet. For more information, visit our website: www.oneequalheart.org.
The Maya believe they are the guardians of the Earth. Their Cosmo vision, in which all life is sacred and interconnected, presents a deeply compelling alternative to the prevailing worldview.
Three special guests from Chiapas will be present following the screening to offer their perspectives, answer questions, and share how their indigenous vision of sustainability informs their ground-breaking work in Tseltal Maya communities.
Rated for General Audiences. Subtitles in English.
If you are unable to join us but would like to support locally-led sustainability work of indigenous Tseltal communities in Chiapas, you can do so here.
Thanks for your support!
