The Fall of the EmpireDVD - 2004
"In present-day Mexico, physical evidence of the once-powerful Aztec Empire can be difficult to see. How did such a powerful society and culture virtually disappear? The answer dates back to the arrival of Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes. Overcome by the Spanish and their native allies, the great Aztec Empire fell. Learn about the fall of the Aztec Empire, explore the culture clashes that ensued when two very different societies merged and witness the crumbling of the Aztec culture and the decline of its population due to enslavement and disease. While Christianity and the Spanish language prevail in Mexico today, traditions and tales of the lost Aztec Empire live on through its remaining descendants."--DVD container cover insert.
