Ixcanul

Wednesday, April 12, 2017,

  • Location: Sarratt Cinema

Presented by: Avery Dickins de Girón, Executive Director of the Center for Latin American Studies

USA (2015) Dir: Jayro Bustamente. 

Ixcanul (which translates to ‘volcano’ in Kaqchikel) is the coming-of-age story of Maria, a 17-year-old Mayan girl. This brilliant directoraial debut 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. Kaqchikel with English subtitles. 100 min. Blu-ray Presented in Collaboration with the Center for Latin American Studies.
