I Dream in Another Language (Sueno en Otro Idioma)
Part of the World Perspectives Strand
When linguistics expert Martín travels to a remote village in Mexico to study the ancient, near-dead language of Zikril, he learns that the only two remaining native speakers, Don Isauro and Don Evaristo, have not spoken to each other in many years. As Martin pushes for a reconciliation and his bond with Evaristo’s granddaughter deepens, the painful story behind the rift emerges. This is languorous, engaging cinema with lush cinematography and a poetic underpinning that never veers into sentimentality.
