“An absorbing, beautifully-shot drama of cultural ritual and the drive of one young woman to escape a rudimentary social system.”~The Film Stage

Aroview: Rare Guatemalan drama set on the slopes of an active volcano, where a marginalised Mayan community prepare for the arranged marriage of a 17-year old girl to the foreman of the coffee plantation that their lives centre around. A small scale and humanistic ethnography.
