Secrets of Coba is my first feature-length documentary film now in the post-production phase. It tells the story of two Maya families in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula who have continued to maintain their culture through centuries of hardship. I am currently raising money to get this film made and help an international audience become aware of what it means to be Maya in the 21st century. By contributing to this film you are fighting for social justice on behalf of a lesser-known indigenous culture and helping them empower each other to keep pushing forward. This film will be a powerful and inspirational story unveiling generational secrets and traditions that have managed to keep an ancient civilization alive all this time.
While this film will introduce the kinds of projects the Maya are working on to keep their culture alive, it will also be an inspiration for others to become personally involved in their eco-tourism, conservation efforts, and indigenous art. Through the empowerment that comes with the development of these projects already in motion the Maya will have access to more resources to continue their sustainable living and educational goals.
