Screening of Mexico's I Dream in Another Language [SUEÑO EN OTRO IDIOMA] followed by Q & A with director Ernesto Contreras and reception hosted by the Mexican Cultural Institute DC

Martín (Fernando Alvarez Rebeil, THE DARKNESS, GRINGO) is a linguist on a mission to save Zikril, an indigenous language with just two remaining speakers — who happen to be locked in a decades-long feud. Journeying to a remote Mexican village, Martín tries coax Evaristo (Eligio Meléndez) and Isauro (José Manuel Poncelis) into reconciliation, discovering in the process how a dispute over a woman has kept the stubborn men apart for 50 years. With the help of Evaristo's daughter, however, Martín finds that the true cause for the rift is far more complex. With lush photography and a heartfelt message, Ernesto Contreras' debut is an uplifting story of friendship and the enduring power of language.

Audience Award – World Cinema, 2017 Sundance Film Festival; Best Mexican Feature and Best Actor (Meléndez and Poncelis), 2017 Guadalajara Film Festival; Official Selection, 2017 Seattle Film Festival.
