The complex and beautiful Maya hieroglyphic script was until recently the world’s last major undeciphered writing system. Its decoding has unlocked the secrets of one of mankind’s greatest civilizations.
“Breaking the Maya Code” tells the story of the Maya decipherment from the sixteenth century to the present. The feature documentary film is based in large part on the book of the same title by Dr. Michael D. Coe, called by the New York Times “one of the great stories of 20th century scientific discovery”.
