TAC International Film and Video Festival Hand Made: Three Stories from Guatemala


Hecho a Mano is a film about a people emerging, through their own impressive efforts, out of a dark past.  Living in a nation with a history of severe under representation of indigenous Maya communities, Saul Roblero, a twenty-four year old aspiring Guatemalan journalist, sets off across his nation’s countryside to do what few have done before:  have the Maya people tell their own stories!  The resulting journey honestly reveals the voices of communities within the greater Maya civilization.
