Mayan Archaeoastronomy - Observers of the Universe

This show intertwines science and mythology to take audiences on a poetic journey showing how the Mayans have viewed and
understood the Universe throughout their history. The visuals are stunning, giving the viewer the impression of being inside a beautiful stylistic painting.
