《火山下的人生》

《火山下的人生》剧照

玛丽亚是一名17岁的喀克其奎少女,她与父母一起住在一座活火山脚下的咖啡种植园内。她将要嫁给农场的工头,但是玛丽亚希望走出大山,看看外面的世界。于是她引诱了一个想要逃往美国的咖啡收割工人。当这个男人离她而去,她开始重新认识自己生活于其中的世界与文化。

导演Jayro Bustamante成长于危地马拉的喀克其奎文化区,之后返回家乡拍摄电影。他在当地设立工作坊,让人们自己讲述他们的生活故事,从而近距离观察玛雅人当下的生活状态。在此过程中,他发现了当地女性与她们的母亲、祖母之间的某种特殊的仪式关系。《火山下的人生》讲述了因为信仰与传统而定义的故事,影片中呈现的是喀克其奎人的日常生活,这种生活完全不同于全球化情境之下的常见生活。但《火山下的人生》并不是一部讲述土著文化的电影,它本身就植根于这种文化。

Ixcanul Volcano

Ixcanul Volcano Still

María, a 17-year-old Kaqchikel Maya, lives with her parents on a coffee plantation at the foot of an active volcano. She is set to be married to the farm's foreman. But María longs to discover the world on the other side of the mountain, a place she cannot even imagine. And so she seduces a coffee-harvester who wants to escape to the USA. When this man leaves her behind, María discovers her own world and culture anew.

Director Jayro Bustamante grew up in the region of the Kaqchikel Maya in Guatemala and returned there to make his film. He held workshops, asked people to tell stories from their own lives and examined the current living conditions of the Maya at close range. In doing so, he learnt about the special connection the women there have with the rituals of their mothers and grandmothers. The plot picks up the rhythm of a life defined by ancestral beliefs and traditions. An unfamiliar daily routine awaits the audience, far from the globalised world. Ixcanul is not a film about Indigenous culture but one that was developed from within it.
