1×60 HD Documentary
History Television – 2007
In 1960 Canadian filmmaker explorer Collin Hanney trekked through the mahogany rain forests of Chiapas to find an isolated group of Mayan Indians – the Lacandón – and record their images on film. Forty-six years later, Hanney’s widow, Shendra, returns to the small village of Nahá to find out what has happened to the Lacandón, give them back their images and to spread Collin’s ashes in the place he loved so dearly.
Interweaving past and present and combining fabulous archival film and photographs with current documentary footage, The Lacandon Maya tells the story of an isolated community catapulted into civilization within the space of one generation.Play Clip
