Ixcanul =: Volcán

Loading...
"The brilliant debut by Guatemalan filmmaker Jayro Bustamante is a mesmerizing fusion of fact and fable, a dreamlike depiction of the daily lives of Kaqchikel speaking Mayans on a coffee plantation at the base of an active volcano. Immersing viewers in its characters' customs and beliefs, the film chronicles with unblinking realism, a disappearing tradition and a disappearing people."--Container.

Loading...
Describes the lives and work of the organic coffee producers of the Mut Vitz Cooperative in the Highlands of Chiapas, Mexico. The cooperative is comprised of some 600 families from 26 communities in the self-proclaimed autonomous region of San Juan de La Libertad, located in the Highlands of Chiapas. The video was shot and edited by videomakers who are also members of the collective. Over a year in the making, Mut Vitz shows us the entire organic coffee production process: from seedling to transplant, cultivation to the roasted bean. Members of the collective talk about the challenges that the collective faces in processing their coffee for market and Mut Vitz's achievements using a fair trade model of distribution.
