Event Originally produced by Kino Lorber in 2015.
Summary 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**. *"Like its titular Guatemalan volcano, Jayro Bustamante's hypnotic film debut IXCANUL bubbles with the tension of a teenage girl at odds with her family's native customs."* - Alex Migdal, ***The Globe and Mail***
