10th and Olive
Eugene, Oregon, USA


Open to all those who have seen Breaking the Maya Code and have signed up ahead of time.








Summary of activities:


This workshop is led by the filmmakers of Breaking the Maya Code, David LeBrun and Amy Halpern, from Los Angeles. This film, which tells the epic story of how the Maya hieroglyphic script was eventually deciphered, is shown in the Soreng Theater Wednesday, May 20, at 6:30 PM and is also available for viewing in the Video Bar. Workshop participants will learn how to read and write Maya hieroglyphs. The filmmakers have stipulated as a prerequisite that participants see the film, as it contains information that is a necessary foundation for following the instructions within the two-hour span of the workshop. As the room has limited seating, space will be available on a first come-first serve basis. Sign-ups will take place at the Soreng Theater Wednesday evening following the film screening and in the Video Bar Tuesday through Thursday morning.
