This video from the USA is called Mel Gibson Gets Angry with Reporter About Jewish Question.
The BBC reports:
Gibson film angers Mayan groups
“The director is saying the Mayans are savages,” said Lucio Yaxon, a human rights activist.
But consultant archaeologist for the film, Richard Hansen, said Gibson was “trying to make a social statement”.
He said the director, who also co-wrote the film, took pains to ensure the film was historically accurate and authentic.
Gibson’s representatives were not immediately available for comment.
Only the film’s trailer has been seen in Guatemala, but some Mayan leaders say scenes of Mayans with bone piercings sacrificing humans promote stereotypes about their culture.
“Gibson replays… an offensive and racist notion that Maya people were brutal to one another long before the arrival of Europeans and thus they deserved, in fact, needed, rescue,” said Ignacio Ochoa, director of the Nahual Foundation that promotes Mayan culture. …
The Mayan civilisation went into decline after the 8th century.
More than half of Guatemala’s population is descended from the original Maya and most live in poverty with little access to education and social service.
Over 200,000 people, mostly Mayan, were killed during Guatemala’s 36-year civil war that ended a decade ago.
