Please join the Genesee Circle of Friendship Bridge
Oct. 23rd at the Vista Clubhouse

for a free screening of the movie Ixcanul. The movie will start at 6:45 pm and there will be free popcorn and refreshments provided. One of the best-reviewed movies of 2016, Ixcanul was the first film Guatemala ever submitted for Best Foreign Film consideration at the Academy Awards. The movie portrays the daily lives of Mayans living on a coffee plantation at the base of an active volcano. This gorgeously photographed film is an immersive journey into its characters’ customs and beliefs, chronicling with unblinking realism the Mayan people and their traditions in Guatemala.
Everyone is welcome, but please be aware that the movie is subtitled.
Contact Joanne Ihrig at 526-1750 with any questions.
