As regular readers of this blog know, The Wrap.com is one of my favorite Hollywood news sources. It is a very trustworthy, straight forward, non-tabloid source and that is one of the many reasons that I found the following story by Steve Pond so fascinating.
Skeptics will always resist this kind of story; however, what if this is the moment that Stanley Kubrick and Arthur Clarke foresaw in 2001: A Space Odyssey? I’m not saying it definitely is. I’m just asking…..what if?
Mayan Documentary Will Show Evidence of Alien Contact, Says Mexico (Exclusive)
by Steve Pond
A new documentary about Mayan civilization will provide evidence of extraterrestrial contact with the ancient culture, according to a Mexican government official and the film’s producer.
“Revelations of the Mayans 2012 and Beyond,” currently in production, will claim the Mayans had contact with extraterrestrials, producer Raul Julia-Levy revealed to TheWrap.
“Mexico will release codices, artifacts and significant documents with evidence of Mayan and extraterrestrial contact, and all of their information will be corroborated by archaeologists,” said Julia-Levy, son of actor Raul Julia.
In a release to TheWrap, Luis Augusto Garcia Rosado, the minister of tourism for the Mexican state of Campeche, said new evidence has emerged “of contact between the Mayans and extraterrestrials, supported by translations of certain codices, which the government has kept secure in underground vaults for some time.”
He also spoke, in a phone conversation, of “landing pads in the jungle that are 3,000 years old.”
Raul-Julia claims there is proof that the Mayans had intended to lead the planet for thousands of years, but were forced to escape after an invasion by “men of dark intentions,” leaving behind evidence of an advanced race.
“The Mexican government is not making this statement on their own — everything we say, we’re going to back it up,” he said.
The film will be directed by Juan Carlos Rulfo, who won the Humanitas Prize for “Those Who Remain” in 2009 and the Sundance Grand Jury Prize for International Documentary for “In the Pit” in 2006. Juan Diego Rodriguez Gonzalez will serve as the Guatemalan executive producer, and Eduardo Vertiz as the Mexican executive producer.
And yes, they expect people to take this seriously, because the messages he plans to impart are crucial to human survival, Julia-Levy insisted.
When Julia-Levy, producer Ed Elbert and co-producer Sheila McCarthy announced the Mexican cooperation with their documentary to TheWrap in August, they were circumspect about claims of alien contact, with Julia-Levy admitting he’d been ordered not to say anything about it.
Also for that article, Rosado brushed off a question about alient contact and said his country wa simply offering the filmmakers’ access to previously unexplored sections of a Mayan site at Calakmul (left).
Now, not only has Rosado changed his tune, but the Guatemalan government has joined the project, as well, giving access to artifacts and newly discovered prophecies
While the Guatemalan government is not offering information about aliens, it has joined Mexico in supporting the project. “Guatemala, like Mexico, home to the ancient yet advanced Mayan civilization … has also kept certain provocative archeological discoveries classified, and now believes that it is time to bring forth this information in the new documentary,” Guatemala’s minister of tourism, Guillermo Novielli Quezada, said in a statement.
