The Truth directly from Mayan Elders!
San Francisco, CA – Elisabeth Thieriot, a San Francisco-based filmmaker and author, is pleased to announce the release of her Award Winning documentary Decoding B’aqtun. The feature length film takes audiences deep into the jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula and Guatemala to meet The Maya; arguably the most sophisticated time keepers in human history to this day.
This breathtaking journey began as an endeaver to expose the truth behind the December 21st, 2012 “end time” conspiracy theories surrounding the Aztec and Mayan calendars and the mystery of the “B’aqtun”, also known as the measurement of time that the Mayans identify as 3300-year cycles. During the filming, Thieriot met with Mayan Elders known as “Abuelos”. The Abuelos shared their ancient Mayan knowledge of the intricate cycles of time, the cosmos, and their connection to earth science on a spiritual and scientific level.
