Jacaltec film

Content description Méndez is filmed engaging a young woman in conversation (see tape "Jacaltec texts III": Barcode A70065960), but it is not clear at this time (1/15/15) to which part of the audio tape this film corresponds (i.e., its running time of approximately 3 mins. is too short to cover the length of the 23-minute interview). At intervals the camera pans to a man hitting a clap-board. (The sound permits the synching of film and audio.)
