INTENTION OF THE PROJECT
We have tried to identify the causes that threaten the Quetzals survival.
We have asked whether the United Nations REDD+ plus program will help to save the forest.
We have wondered whether the oppression of the indigenous people really has ended and find what part they play in the preservation of their cultural symbol.

We visited the ruins of the ancient Mayan city of Ximiche , which is still used today by the Shamans who had to work overtime to rid the site of an imported malevolence following the visit of George W Bush culture. We explained the Long Count calendar which predicts the emergence of a new era, and eventually we really did find the feathered serpent God, Quetzalcoatl, the part bird part dragon, which inhabits the remote cloudforest of San Narcos.
We avoided becoming caught up in the wave of criminal violence sweeping the the country as a result of the drugs trade.
And we have filmed it all...
