Maria, a 17 year old Mayan woman, lives on the slopes of an active volcano in Guatemala. An arranged marriage awaits her. Although Maria dreams of seeing 'the city', her status as an indigenous woman does not allow her to go out into that 'modern world'. Later, during a pregnancy complication, this modern world will save her life, but at what price.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    The Guardian Jordan Hoffman

    What's most striking about Ixcanul is the elegant way in which it is shot. Scenes are given space, and the audience is allowed ample time to soak up the atmosphere.

    The Hollywood Reporter Neil Young

    A solid example of low-key, well-observed, humanistically sympathetic ethnography.

  • 60

    CineVue Patrick Gamble

    Ixcanul may struggle to tackle the larger issue it posits but well represents the lives and rituals of the marginalised community it seeks to give a voice.
