I Dream In Another Language directed by Ernesto Contreras (Mexico/Netherlands) 2017 involves the effort to preserve a dying language.
A young researcher arrives in a remote village nestled in a lush, Mexican rainforest hoping to record a nearly extinct indigenous language while the last three native speakers are still alive. One speaker dies shortly after he gets there, leaving only two men who haven’t spoken to one another in decades.
The heart of the film revolves around a complex, volatile relationship spanning years.
It’s one of the centerpiece programs of the forthcoming Frameline 41 festival and is scheduled to screen 20 June 2017 at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco.
