Released 2006

”Apocalypto” is an American film released in 2006 and stars a cast of very talented Mayan actors and people of Native American descent. It was written by Mel Gibson and Farhad Safinia. The entire film is spoken in the Yucatec language with English subtitles and can best be categorized as historical fiction. The story shows the decline of the Mayan empire through the eyes of a meso-american tribesman who must escape the fate of human sacrifice and then save his family. This film is beautifully shot from a non-eurocentric perspective. There are no non Native American actors.
