The Honey Jar retells the ancient stories Rigoberta Mench 's grandparents told her when she was a little girl, and we can imagine her listening to them by the fire at night. These Maya tales include natural phenomena, narratives, and animal stories. The underworld, the sky, the sun and moon, plants, people, animals, gods, and demi-gods are all players in these vibrant stories. Enchanting images by Domi draw on the Maya landscape and the rich visual vocabulary that can be found in the weavings and crafts for which the Maya are renowned

This powerful documentary exposes the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the immigration crisis we face today.

Adapted from the landmark book written by journalist Juan Gonzalez, the film tells the story of an epic human saga that is largely unknown to the great majority of citizens in the U.S., but must become part of our national conversation about immigration

Me llamo Rigoberta Menchú y así me nació la conciencia by Rigoberta Menchú( Book )
19 editions published between 1983 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 25 libraries worldwide
"Rigoberta nació en San Miguel Uspantán, Departamento El Quiché, en Guatemala. Hace 23 años nació, y el castellano lo aprendió hace tres, sin libros, maestros ni escuela. Lo aprendió con su voluntad feroz por romper el silencio en el que viven los indios de América Latina. Se apropió el lenguaje del colonizador, no para integrarse a una historia que nunca la incluyó, sino para hacer valer, mediante la palabra, una cultura que es parte de esa historia. "Me llamo Rigoberta Menchú", dice llanamente, y en esa frase escueta se escucha la voz de todo un pueblo indígena que ha decidido liberarse. Sus palabras no son meramente de denuncia y de protesta. Son ante todo una enérgica afirmación de una manera de ser, de un derecho a ser lo que se es: una cultura específica, una comprensión del universo, una interacción con la naturaleza. La historia de Rigoberta hace eco a la historia de todas las comunidades indígenas de América Latina que han decidido arrebatarle la palabra al opresor."--Back cover
