MOVIE*: - "Ixcanul" - the first full-length film in Kaqchikel Maya and Guatemala’s 2016 entry for "Best Foreign Language Film" at the 88th Academy Awards.
“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...” – Kino Lorber website (https://www.kinolorber.com/film/view/id/2266)
(**This film is not recommended for younger children. ***Kaqchikel Maya, with English subtitles.)
