Event Description

Area Premiere!

Friday, November 11 – Monday, November 14

(2015) dir Jayro Bustamante w/María Mercedes Coroy, María Telón, Manuel Antún, Justo Lorenzo, Marvin Coroy [93 min; DCP]
Maria, a 17-year-old Mayan woman, lives on the slopes of an active volcano in Guatemala and is reluctantly betrothed to the supervisor at the coffee plantation where she and her family work. Enthralled with thoughts of a life in the modern world, Maria becomes infatuated with Pepe, a drunk and a dreamer who has plans to flee to the United States.
The brilliant debut by Guatemalan filmmaker Jayro Bustamante is a mesmerizing fusion of fact and fable, a dreamlike depiction of the daily lives of Kaqchikel speaking Mayans on a coffee plantation at the base of an active volcano. Immersing us in its characters’ customs and beliefs, Ixcanul chronicles with unblinking realism, a disappearing tradition and a disappearing people.
