Q&A with Rafael Garcia, director of Mayan Blue
The underwater city of Samabaj features an cave with stalagmites, stalactites and other captivating formations. Samabaj is underneath Lake Atitlan in Guatemala.
When did you become aware of Samabaj, and how did the film project get launched? We first became aware of the site of Samabaj in 2007 after visiting the lake Atitlan area on a b-roll trip for a project titled, “Dive the World.” That project would eventually morph into “Mayan Blue” after quickly realizing the scope of the Samabaj discovery.
