Brief Synopsis:
Set in the Mayan civilization, when a man's idyllic presence is brutally disrupted by a violent invading force, he is taken on a perilous journey to a world ruled by fear and oppression where a harrowing end awaits him. Through a twist of fate and spurred by the power of his love for his woman and his family he will make a desperate break to return home and to ultimately save his way of life.
Intention:
The original movie is pretty perfect in my eyes but I was curious to see if I could cut the dialogue from the film and it still retain its power and narrative. While it wasn't possible to completely remove dialogue I have trimmed about 60% of it and subtitled the dialogue where I felt it was necessary. The removal of a lot of dialogue and a faster pace now means the movie run-time is 111 minutes cut down 28 minutes from the original 139 minute version.
Special Thanks:
A massive thanks to SSJ for previewing the edit.

Editing Details:
I considered going the silent route with this but in the end went for a more streamlined version of the original film.. I wanted the edit to work purely on its visuals, music and ambient sound with as little dialogue as possible (when used subtitles are hardcoded).
Cuts and Additions:
There are numerous edits to remove dialogue throughout the movie but these are the significant cuts:

- Ball cutting scene trimmed
- Soanzo leaf discussion cut
- Jaguar Paws wife first introduction cut
- Evening Tribal ceremony partially cut
- Village raid trimmed
- Cliffhanger partially cut
-First night captured cut
- Encounter with diseased prophet girl partially cut
- Trip to the pyramid partially cut
- Sacrificial Ceremony trimmed
- Run to the corn trimmed
- Final Chase sequence numerous trims throughout
- Epilogue cut
