Tonight’s movie is of interest to anyone who digs Maya culture.
“Ixcanul” was directed by Jayro Bustamante, writer-director of Guatemala’s most award-winning film. “Ixcanul” (which translates roughly to “volcano” in the Mayan dialect of Kaqchikel) is the story of two strong indigenous Mayan women, mother and daughter. Currently enjoying a 100 percent critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it arrived in U.S. theaters this month and is at Door 54 tonight at 7.
