The Soul of Mexico II: Landscape of Pyramids

film screening

During the Classical period Mesoamerica gave birth to numerous ceremonial sites and cities that, at their peak, created an impressive pyramid landscape.  Cities developed by Teotihuacans, Zapotecs and Mayans became important centers for religion, knowledge, power and commerce. 

Mayans reached the scientific and artistic peak in Mesoamerica.  They created the notion of zero and used their mathematical knowledge in creating a calendar of amazing accuracy.  The artistic genius of Mayans is shown throughout their architecture, sculpture, painting and ceramics, as well as in the urban design of their cities.

Written and directed by Héctor Tajonar and narrated by Carlos Fuentes
