Is the film still relevant, even if 2012 already passed by?

Yes, because the prophecies are made for a period of 20 years, not for a single moment. How this so called katun of the calender system of the Mayas may be ranged in our Gregorian calender is subject of another DVD of Silke Grasreiner (the video conference "Extraterrestrial Presence", available in spanish and German). The film here treats the contents of the real, historically verified prophecies and the life of the Mayas today which is still relevant.

There is so much about this topic. What makes this film different?

The film contains original quotations from an ancient, still preserved Maya document. The words of the prophet lead besides the commentary through the whole film that has been shot in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and Belize. The author and producer lives in the Yucatan Peninsula. It is a unique and extensive film about the Mayas, their life and their cosmovision made by an experienced journalist who lives on-site as well.

Excerpts of what German journalists and spectators said about this film: 

"With recent publications about the Mayas on the change of cycle in 2012, that are mostly little meaningful and very profit-oriented, you are contrasting strongly."

"This film is a product that reminds of a TV reporter on one hand, and on the other shows much love and caring for the people of the Mayas."

"This documentary tells in a relaxed and calm manner about the life and the culture of the Mayas and is therefore in accordance with the real spirit of what the 21st of december 2012 means as to the understand¡ng of the Mayas."


Original pages from the "Chilam Balam" in maya. 



The Mayas dominated and preserved the art of foresight. More than 500 years ago they foresaw the arrival of the Spanish Conquerors and the following changes in the world. They transmitted their visions verbally, later they were written down, for example in the so-called "Chilam books". The prophecies for the time until the end of the Maya calender in the year 2012 are astonishing. 

How would the Maya prophet Chilam Balam see the world today? This was the starting point for a long journey through the Mayaland, what is today Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and Honduras. Packed with his former prophecies Chilam Balam sees today exactly what he predicted 500 years ago: explotation of nature by man, catastrophies and climate change, explotation of man by man, corruption and abuse of power.



"There will be white circles in the sky" the Maya prophecies say:

But the prophecies give as well hopeful outlooks, as for the future of mankind, as for the future of the Mayas who preserved an original identity and cosmovision in which many supernatural phenomena have their place. 

The spectator discovers the political, economic, cultural and religious life of the Mayas in modern society; he gets acquainted with the invisible world of the dwarves and more beings from other dimensions with whom the Mayas are in contact. He learns the true meaning of their mythology and legends that he might think he knows by books and films.

Session of a agrarian cooperative in Sololá, Guatemala:

traditionally the Mayas do not consider land as their property, but as a loan.



Only a few Mayas still live in Honduras, but their monuments and history are alive.
The son of a guard of the Maya site of Copán tells the story.



In the 19th century many Mayas fled from Yucatan's so-called "Caste War" to Belize:

a descendant shows his altar with relics.



A Maya franciscan father talks about the unglorious history of the Church in Guatemala

and about the limits of the Catholic religion, much tighter than the Maya cosmovision.



The ancient Mayas breathed life into dwarfs made of clay:

a farmer from Yucatan can confirm this from his own experience.


In another village in Yucatan a Maya legend is reality:

a ghost in the form of a beautiful woman seduces drunken men at night
who unsuspectingly get involved with the dangerous game. An innkeeper witnessed.

A new complexion is put on the origin of the Mayas: the “water wizards”, as they called themselves,
came from Atlantis, says this young Mexican after a first-hand timetravel experience.



The night guard of a Maya site in the Yucatan saw beings coming out of a light cone

and they talked to him in a Maya dialect.

"And why you other planet?": the grandmother of this lacandon maintained contact
to the ancient Mayas 
who had emigrated to a different galaxy.


The film "2012: The Truth of the Maya-Prophecies" opens a new sight on the world of the Mayas, their cosmovision and universal connections.



"Power for women”: indigenous peoples of America demanded more influence on world politics
at their summit in Guatemala in March 2007. According to their prophecies the Mayas will have a say, too.



This Maya girl looks ahead with joy: 
for a long time the Mayas, their culture and language have been oppressed,
but now they experience a revival - here at a class in Maya.



The film has been shown for the first time in full length in the village in Yucatán where the Maya document stems from. The quotations of this manuscript form the golden thread of the film. By doing that I wanted to give their culture back to the Mayas, which has been robbed from them. The oldest existing manuscript of the book is located in the University of Princeton in the USA.
