In-person screenings resume at the Maine International Film Festival, beginning July 9!
Accused of the genocide of Mayan people, retired general Enrique is trapped in his home by massive protests. Abandoned by his staff, the indignant old man and his family must face the devastating truth of his actions and the growing sense that a wrathful supernatural force is targeting them for his crimes. Acclaimed filmmaker Jayro Bustamante presents an urgent and frightening reimagining of the iconic Latin American fable.
Prior to watching the films, feel free to view mini lectures by Professor Ana Almeyda-Cohen and by Professor Tiffany Creegan Miller on Maya communities in Guatemala and the film’s inclusion of a long-standing Latin American legend, respectively. Then, after watching the film, view the live discussion with the filmmaker and scholars.
