The Train and the Peninsula is a deep dive into the Yucatán peninsula that takes us on a journey along the projected tracks of the railroad megaproject called "Tren Maya" into the ideological and territorial struggles being waged in the ancestral land of the Maya. Through the stories and reflections of the inhabitants of the peninsula, this documentary weaves together a collective story full of wisdom and vitality, exposing the different ways of imagining progress, while helping us to unravel the environmental and social consequences of the development model imposed in the region.
