About this event

Jayro Bustamante Guatemala, France, 2015

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.

The program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
