Film: Sueño en Otro Idioma/I Dream in Another Language
October 10, 2019
When a young linguist travels into a rural area of Veracruz to record conversations between the last speakers of Zikril, a dying indigenous language, he discovers that the language is at the point of disappearing, as the last two speakers had a fight 50 years ago and have refused to speak to each other ever since. Trying to bring the two old friends back together, he discovers that a secret from the past, concealed by the language, will make it difficult for the heart of Zikril to beat again.
