US PREMIERE A sensorial film about the members of a Zoque community in Chiapas, whose village was buried in a volcano eruption in 1982. Thirty-eight years later, a poet named Trinidad, prophetically born on the day of the eruption, leads the community to excavate their former town and unearth the relics of their church. Their moving encounter with grief, with their ancestors and with the spirit of the volcano is conjured in this cinematic delight. – Ruth Somalo
