Ixcanul
aka Ixcanul Volcano
First screened in September 2015
Director: Jayro Bustamante. Cast: María Mercedes Coroy, María Telón, Marvin Coroy, Justo Lorenzo, Manuel Manuel Antún, Fernando Martínez. Screenplay: Jayro Bustamante.

Twitter Capsule: Guatemalan drama quietly, sturdily makes expert choices scene after scene, culminating in my biggest jaw-drop of the fest.

VOR:   Proof that there are still places where cinema has barely gone. Poised exquisitely on a knife-edge of traditionalism and modernity. Characters keep misreading each other, as do we.
