Documentary on Belize
The Road is Coming
with Frank Weiss
Wednesday, August 22
The Road is Coming is a brief examination of the constant changes in culture in the Central American country of Belize as a result of the continual influence of Western society. Spanning from its colonial period as British Honduras on to modern Belize, the film explores the country's distinctive ecosystems, its indigenous Mayan culture, its developing tourism and petroleum industries, and its volatile political and social climate.
The film was shot on site in Belize in a span of only five days, edited, and produced by Stockton student and "visual adventurer" Frank Weiss. Frank channels his love for nature and humanity into his work, capturing both the stunning beauty and the desperate social problems of the young, undeveloped country.
Filmed and edited by Frank Weiss
