Nov 21 Celebrating the International Year of Indigenous Languages (2019)

I Dream in Another Language | Ernesto Contreras | 2017 | 101 min | Mexico, Netherlands | In Spanish | NR
with guest speaker Dr. Ron Bonham, VIU Department of English (retired)

A moving, generous film about the relationship between love and language. Martin, a young, urbane linguist visits a remote Mexican village in order to record and thus preserve a dying indigenous language. When one of the three speakers of Zikril dies, the remaining 2 pose a serious problem for Martin; they had a serious falling out as young men and haven’t spoken for over 50 years! Beautifully filmed by Contreras, I Dream blends the director’s experience with documentary filmmaking with Hispanic magical realism and a love of the poetic.
