Join us for the Gene Siskel Center Movie Club on Wednesday, January 11th at 6:00pm, which will include a post-screening conversation and a complimentary beverage in Gene Siskel Film Center's Gallery/Cafe (movie ticket required). January 11: The Movie Club event will be facilitated by Camille Roussel, Ph.D. student in Human Development at the University of Chicago, whose scholarship focuses on gender and women's health issues among the K'ekchi' Maya in Guatemala.
Guatemala's second-ever Oscar submission is a powerfully visualized narrative enriched by feminist themes and ethnographic detail. Set in an indigenous Mayan community of coffee-farmers living in the shadow of an active volcano, the story centers on María, a restless 17-year-old indigenous girl whose parents have arranged an advantageous marriage to the plantation overseer. She prefers a young worker whom she hopes will take her to the United States "on the other side of the volcano," but an unplanned pregnancy traps her between indigenous beliefs and the deceptions of the modern world. In Kaqchikel and Spanish with English subtitles. DCP digital widescreen.
