A note from our curator, independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:
Equitrekking host and world traveler Darley Newman blazes the lush trails of Belize’s jungles by way of horseback, a method of transportation that permits extensive exploration through the thickets of the rainforest. Darley learns of the Mayan presence among the cascading waterfalls and dense greenery some 1,500 years ago, and of several useful plant remedies and treatments still used today. The resilient and enriching qualities of the rainforest allow mankind to thrive through appreciative cohabitation.
