Filmmaker Ilana Lapid will be stopping by the Guild Cinema on Thursday, Feb. 9, for the 6 and 8pm showings of her recently completed film Yochi. This special presentation by Defenders of Wildlife is free to the general public. Seating is limited and is available on a first come, first served basis. The film focuses on Yochi, a 9-year-old selectively mute Mayan boy, who guards a wild bird nest in the pine savanna of Belize. When his beloved older brother returns from the city, Yochi discovers that he’s in debt and has turned to poaching—setting the brothers on a collision course. The film opened the Belize International Film Festival in November. Lapid will lead a post-film discussion about the making of the drama, the conservation of yellow-headed parrots in South America and the illegal wildlife trafficking industry as a whole. Lapid, an assistant professor at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, financed the film’s post-production though social media. For more information go to yochifilm.com.
