Film trailer

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.
Winner of the Alfred Bauer award and nominee for the Golden Berlin Bear award at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival.

Watch the film for free on Kanopy and then join us on October 29 for the film discussion.
