The Mexican government is releasing state-held secrets that it's held for 80 years about the end of the Mayan calendar to filmmakers who are making a documentary about it.
In Reuters, Steve Pond quotes Mexican tourism minister Luis Augusto Garcia Rosado as saying, "The Mayans used to construct one pyramid over another. In the site at Calakmul, workers for the National Institute of Anthropology and History have discovered rooms inside the pyramid that have never been seen or explored before. And we're letting this documentary film there, to see what has been discovered inside the pyramid."
One condition demanded by the government is that the film has to be released before the end of the Mayan calendar, which is December 21, 2012 (maybe because they're afraid there won't be any theaters afterwards?) Producer Raul Julia-Levy says, "The Mexican government is preparing to tell humanity and the world things that are critical for us, for the way we live, for the way we've been handling the planet."
