2. FILMAKING PROJECT IN SANTIAGO ATITLAN NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT

FROM GSN'ER ELIZABETH BELL

My former student Chris Keaton, who is an aspiring filmmaker, was invited by a Maya community in the Santiago Atitlan area to help make short films about topics related to contemporary Maya culture. There is a group of young Mayas who have been trying to get a project like this off the ground, and they specifically invited Chris to come and help. He currently has a GoFundMe campaign to raise money. It's volunteer for him, so this is for videography equipment and such.
