I Dream in Another Language | Sueño en Otro Idioma
Directed by: Ernesto Contreras | Mexico/Netherlands | 2017 | 101 minutes
In Spanish with English Subtitles
Set in the present day, Mexican director Ernesto Contreras, masterfully utilizes flashbacks to weave a visually compelling story about the last two speakers of an ancient indigenous language, who must confront a secret past in order to safeguard their culture.
Martín a young idealistic linguist, ventures to a remote Mexican village to record and study conversations between the last three surviving speakers of a dying indigenous language called Zikril. Soon after his arrival, Jacinta, the only surviving female speaker of the language dies. Unfortunately for Martín, the ultra-cantankerous Evaristo doesn’t want anything to do with the project - or with his childhood friend Isauro, who he hasn’t spoken to for 50 years. With the help of Lluvia, Evaristo’s granddaughter, Martín must try to convince the men to reconcile.
Winner of the Audience Award: World Cinema Dramatic at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, I Dream in Another Language raises unexpected questions about identity, cultural preservation, and love.
