Rotary Club of Lititz April Travelogue will feature “Guatemala: Land of the Maya”
The next presentation of the Rotary Club of Lititz 2018-19 Travel & Adventure Series will be held Saturday, April 6, at the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center, 301 W. Orange Street, Lititz. There are two performances: Matinee at 2:00 p.m. with a musical prelude starting at 1:30 p.m. and Evening at 7:30 p.m. with a musical prelude starting at 7 p.m.
“Guatemala: The Land of the Maya” is a beautiful travelogue that begins by exploring the achievements of the ancient Maya by visiting fabled places like El Mirador, Tikal and Yaxha. It examines the historic tension between Mayan traditions and Spanish colonialism, using the religious pageantry of Antigua’s Easter Week celebration to provide a cinematic backdrop for the fascinating conversation. It documents contemporary Mayan culture in Lake Atitlan where weavers spin cotton by hand and rely on the natural dyes and back strap looms to create world-class textiles. This documentary provides important context for understanding and exploring the fascinating Land of the Maya.
