Description: We are joined by author, historian and podcaster Mark Vinet of the History of North America podcast to discuss the real story, context and background behind the modern Mel Gibson classic Apocalypto. This film was ground breaking in many ways. It attempts to portray the Mayan Native Americans and is filmed completely in their language. This is a beautiful film and Mark Vinet will help us learn more about the Maya and their history and culture.
