Awakening Quetzalcoatl - documentary journey through the ancient Mayan land - CREW NEEDED
Posted February 17th, 2011 - 11:50 am by from Los Angeles, United States (Permalink)
Dear community,

I am about to return to Mexico to continue a documentary project in which I plan on investing all my energy and soul into. Awakening Quetzalcoatl is a feature length documentary of the journey of a crew living, working, and traveling on an ecological bus throughout the ancient Mayan land of Mexico and spreading a message of Sustainability. The crew consists of young diverse social entrepreneurs that live, work and travel for a Mexican educational non-profit 'BioTu' (www.biotu.org) on a bus that runs on biodiesel (produced from waste vegetable oil), solar panels and other forms of alternative energy. BioTU focuses on investigation, education, and the application of modern sustainability—incorporating the ancient indigenous legacy of living within ecological limits with the modern day advantages of telecommunications and renewable energy.

Their mission is to help create a sustainable Mexico that will utilize renewable energies and will count with conscious citizens educated about environmental challenges in order to find sustainable solutions in their communities.

BioTu begins with a goal of expanding ancient sustainability knowledge through the teachings of elders in the community and traveling throughout Mexico spreading the message and words of wisdom to the new generation, the future of humanity. Through teachings of the elders of the communities through indigenous ceremonies with Don Julian, a Huichol Medicine Man, and interviews with other Mayan medicine people. The BioTu crew experience these teachings and have a reaction to this knowledge. After digesting the information they embark on their mission to deliver the message through the BioTu workshops and through this documentary. The crew inspires thousands of youth throughout Mexico to live a more sustainable lifestyle and to continue to spread the message of the elders of the community

The people and events will shape the journey and lives of the crew as they begin to understand the ancient beliefs of the Mayan Civilization, their respect to Mother Earth, and the beginning of a new Era 2012: The Age of Aquarius and the “Return of Quetzalcoatl” which will be explained by Mayan elders, Academics and Scientist across the world.

Awakening Quetzalcoatl explores many important themes: modern sustainability, renewable energy, spirituality, and preservation of native cultures. BioTU will be traveling across Mexico on their mission 2010-2011: The Mexican Evolution. Awakening Quetzalcoatl will document and demonstrate the solutions of sustainability across different projects and communities throughout Mexico who have similar missions like BioTU.

Join us on this journey of adventure, travel, life lessons and a life-long mission to live sustainably and to impact those around us to create a more sustainable and earth friendly world….

We are looking for CREW for the end of the 2011 journey in March and April. Spanish is not a requirement. If you are interested or know of someone, please email resume, links to some of your work or reel and a brief description of why you think you are a good candidate and what you can bring to this project!

This is a expenses covered position (room and board on the bus), however at the moment there is no budget to pay anyone. If grant is received, then we can arrange a form of payment.

Also in need of an additional camera, if anyone has a camera lying around that could loan it to this project.

Thank you for your support.

Best vibes,
Catalina
