Introducing Apocalypto, Gibson hints at Iraqi campaign





Famous actor-director Mel Gibson has staged a surprise presentation of his new movie at the Fantastic Fest in Austin (USA).

Gibson presents his new Apocalypto picture about Mayan civilization, on which he is working right now and screened some footage from the film.  At the promotion screening, Gibson drew parallels between the Mayan civilization and the current situation in the United States, concerning the Iraqi operation.

As Kinoafisha reports, the film depicts collapse of the civilization. Gibson is quoted as saying that “the precursors to a civilization that's going under are the same, time and time again.” “What's human sacrifice if not sending guys off to Iraq for no reason?”  It is worth mentioning a third of the audience welcomed him by a standing ovation.

The film is to be released on December 8.
