IXCANUL Now Playing in U.S. Theaters


(Jayro Bustamante, Guatemala/France, 2015, 91 min. In Kaqchikel with English subtitles)

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.
