ixcanul-1

Double Feature with THE FITS

(2015) dir Jayro Bustamante w/María Mercedes Coroy, María Telón, Manuel Antún, Justo Lorenzo, Marvin Coroy [93 min; DCP]
This brilliant debut by Guatemalan filmmaker 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 – and the story of one young woman’s dangerous desire to break free.

“Bustamante’s film is downright Herzogian… in its surfeit of physical detail, observed ritual and looming clash of civilizations.” – Variety

“More than a fable about the clash of tradition and modernity, IXCANUL is finally a painful illustration of the ease with which those who have can prey on those who don’t.” – The New York Times
