Thursday 17 October: 6:00pm - 8:30pm

Newnham College, Cynthia Beerbower Room, Dorothy Garrod Building, Sidgwick Avenue, CB3 9DF

Join us for a screening of the indigenous language Guatemalan film 'Ixcanul' followed by a panel discussion.
'Ixcanul' is named for the active volcano on which teenaged María (María Mercedes Coroy) lives with her parents (María Telón and Manuel Antún) in a small Kaqchikel village. They grow coffee and live on the volcano's slopes, mostly isolated from an increasingly globalized world. The film was entirely produced in Guatemala with a largely non-professional cast and crew or Kaqchikel people.

The panel discussion (speakers tba) will focus around the portrayal of indigenous Guatemalans and the issues the film brings forward about the relationship between the United States and Latin America, current immigration and globalization.
