Summary "This animated short from Chile tells the tale of creation based on 'Popul vuh: the ancient stories of the Quiché, ' written by the iindigenous Maya Quiché people after the Spanish Conquest. The vibrant illustrations are taken from Mayan codices, paintings found on vessels, and stones carved with scenes from the 'Popul vuh' between the years 300-900 A.D. Accompanying the narrator is original music performed with pre-Columbian and other ethnographic instruments from the Americas. The text relates solely to the creation of the world and humankind, and gives the viewer a unique look into Mayan culture and history"--Container
