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.
