Created by John Hutter, an adventurer and filmmaker who also owned a resort in Wisconsin called "Chateau Hutter", this short travelogue film takes viewers on a tour through the highlands of Guatemala. It appears to have been shot in the late 1940s and features footage of Amatitlan, Antiqua and Chicicastenango. The opens with Hutter pointing to the location of the Guatemalan highlands on a globe (1:07). The streets of Guatemala City are shown next (1:18). It is a modern metropolis including a market place once used by ancient Mayans and today’s civilians barter and trade here in the same way as their ancestors (1:31). Amatitlan is a small village which rests on the shores of Lake Amatitlan (2:30) and it is considered to be a resort area. The marketplace which draws natives from miles around is set up under a large tree (2:37). From here, a span of churches is shown and these were mostly constructed by the Spanish about 300 years prior (2:44). Women and children filling pots of water (3:07) then leads to picturesque shots of a waterfall in the area (4:10). Once the old capital of all of Central America, Antigua stands with historical relics such as an old palace the Captain General had ruled from (4:26). Laundry is still washed in a watering hole here (6:52). Shots of Lake Amatitlan follow as it is known as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world (7:33) with villages running along the shore and mountains in the background (8:53). Turning to Chicicastenango, one of the most colorful and cultural market places exists here (10:28). Natives travel many miles with heavy packs in order to sell their goods as well as worship inside of the old churches (10:55). It is noted that groups of natives from varying towns all wear the same attire and it was easy to tell who came from which village (10:57). The film snaps to conclusion after a bird’s eye view of the market place (12:27) as well as a look inside the centuries old church (13:05).
