Watch This: “Ixcanul” an amazing looking Mayan-language film!

I cannot wait to see this film, Ixcanul, which roughly translates to, “the internal force of the mountain which is boiling and looking for eruption,” in Kaqchikel Mayan. In fact the entire film is in Kaqchikel, written and directed by Jayro Bustamante who is 1/4 Maya. Even though about 60% of Guatemala’s population is Maya, Maya stories are rarely told, especially not on the big screen.

So far it has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes critics rating, which is kind of amazing!
