Jayro Bustamante’s extraordinary feature debut, IXCANUL, is the Reel Film Club selection for June. Guatemala’s entry into the Academy Awards in 2015, this mesmerizing fusion of fact and fable offers 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.
