Posted: December 13th, 2010

December 21, 2012 - disaster will strike the planet. The world, as we know it, will end. That is what many people, ... web sites and international doomsday entrepreneurs predict. Written, produced and directed by award-winning documentarian Cynthia Banks, "Apocalypse 2012" presents the leaders, chroniclers, debunkers and the businessmen of this wide-spread certainty of a global cataclysm. "Apocalypse 2012" follows people trying to protect themselves and others from what they believe is coming. Sure weve seen a lot of this before. But whats different and fascinating about all these predictions is that doomsday fear is moving into the mainstream culture at a remarkable scary pace. Apocalypse 2012 examines why this particular doomsday has become so significant. The ancient Mayan Long Count Calendar is the source of the doomsday prophecy but [according] to psychologists, archaeologists and scientists, the idea of an apocalypse reflects and magnifies the turmoil and distress of our uncertain times.
