Guatemala’s 2015 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 peasant 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 ancient superstitions and the deceptions of the modern world. In Kaqchikel and Spanish with English subtitles.
