Spanning 200 years, nine countries, and three continents Cracking the Maya Code features a mysterious language, relentless detectives, and an ambitious quest to crack the secrets of the Mayan hieroglyphs. Written and directed by David Lebrun, this documentary highlights the efforts of researchers whose ingenious breakthroughs opened the door to deciphering the Maya Code.

Told by the experts, who solved and decoded one of archaeology’s greatest detective stories, this film delivers insights into the ancient Maya civilization which left behind a mysterious hieroglyphic script. Carved, painted, and drawn on various surfaces and items, Maya Code was deemed too complex to ever understand by scholars. NOVA presents the story of the men and women who journeyed into the jungles of southern Mexico and Central America to investigate the code. Their efforts cracked the code, and this film uncovers what the Mayan writings say about the Maya people.

Showings at 12 PM & 2 PM.
