This time-lapse documentary uses stunning cinematography to demonstrate archaeo-astronomical phenomena in the Mayan areas. Condensing a year of astronomical alignments into just minutes, the film portrays a stunning view of Mayan temples “in action.” These places were built in significant locations with painstaking attention to detail, but they were built and existed in connection with significant astronomical alignments, such as the equinoxes and solstices. “Mayan Time” strives to capture the temporal nature of these sacred spaces and show the beauty and antiquity that make them truly irresistible.
