World Languages Film: Ixcanul

Fri., Feb. 24, 6:30-9:30 p.m.

The Department of World Languages and the Center for Latino Studies present "Ixcanul" (which translates roughly to "volcano" in the Mayan dialect of Kaqchikel). The plot underlines the conflict between a mother who wants to marry her daughter to a man she does not like. The young woman would prefer to run away with a boy she likes, and both of them would like to immigrate to the United States eventually. The film evidences the young woman's confrontation with the modern world-a plot point that is based on the real-life, ongoing exploitation of indigenous people in Guatemala. Free.
