IXCANUL. With María Mercedes Coroy, María Telón, Marvin Coroy

Mayan (Kaqchikel)/Spanish, with English subtitles. N.R, 100 min.

First film produced in the Kaqchikel language,Ixcanul which means Volcano,is a drama/thriller based on the true story of a young woman who lives in an indigenous community of coffee-farmers on the slope of a volcano in Guatemala. “Transporting, hypnotically beautiful” and “downright Herzogian”,Ixcanul combines its fable-like plot with striking realism.” (Scott Foundas, Variety) It deals with the vulnerability of poor, indigenous farmers and women in particular, unable to determine their own destiniesbecause they live in isolation with little or no Spanish.
