Film Screening: LA LLORONA (Haunting Film From Guatemala) English subtitles

Monday 18 October 2021

Welcome to the screening of the beautifully haunting film from Guatemala, La Llorona. Blending suspenseful drama with supernatural thrills, the film makes a bold comment on Guatemala’s failure to atone for crimes against its Mayan population. The film is in Spanish with English subtitles.

 

Organised by the ethical Spanish school, Spanish Marks and screened at the 1940’s styled India Club Lounge-Bar.

ABOUT “LA LLORONA”:

An aging paranoid war criminal, protected by his faithful wife, faces death while being haunted by the ghosts of his past.

The story roots itself in the recent true history of Guatemala’s ruthless military leaders and their efforts in erasing indigenous tribes. It successfully refashions the classic horror story of the weeping ghostly mother into a postcolonial critique – and a bold comment on Guatemala’s failure to atone for crimes against its Mayan population.

Filled with bewitching imagery and tension, director Bustamante has established a reputation for channeling the voice of Guatemala’s persecuted Mayan community.

The film gained international praise and became the first film from Guatemala to be nominated for a Foreign Language Golden Globe.
