The latest New Age apocalyptic preoccupation is based on a curious misreading of the ancient Mayan calendar. This interpretation (rejected by Mayan elders and serious scholars alike) suggests that the calendar's ending in 2012 portends a world-ending or at least world-changing cataclysm in that year. Jim Kenney examines a great story woven from poor scholarship and the hope of a better world. 2010. 110 minutes.
