Guatemala's first-ever entry into the Academy Awards is this dreamlike debut from Guatemalan filmmaker Jayro Bustamante. Mixing fact and fable, the Herzog-like drama depicts the daily lives and rituals of Kaqchikel-speaking Mayans on a coffee plantation at the base of an active volcano. The local, nonprofessional actors--who also helped contribute to Bustamante's ethnographic script--only add to the documentary-like feel of the film. In Maya and Spanish with English subtitles. 93 minutes Unrated.
