Emily Cole ANTH 2100 Living Maya II Film Review 5 Living Maya II is the second in a series of four documentaries. This film documents the same family as in the previous film, but shows different aspects of life. The society practices collective labor on a dance pavilion. However, there is an outcry when the government wants the society to work as a collective on the orange orchards. The idea of working collectively in the fields threatens the Mayan way of life. They are afraid that not everyone will put in an equal amount of work and say that collective work is more difficult. Only the work of family can be truly dependable, as the domestic unit is the unit of production for the Mayan. The second Maya film highlights increased specialization. The doctors and healers working with Margarita are examples of specialization. Religion again comes into play here as well: the healer uses a blend of Catholicism and Mayan culture. Reymundo and his family also weave hammocks to sell for extra money.
