Description

Deeply poignant and moving with a mystery at its core, I DREAM IN ANOTHER LANGUAGE is the story of Martin (Fernando Alvarez Rebeil), a young linguist who travels to the jungles of Mexico to research a language on the verge of disappearing. Once there, he discovers that its last two speakers—Isauro (Jose Manuel Poncelis) and Evaristo (Eligion Melendez)—clashed 50 years ago and have refused to speak to each other since. Attempting to reunite them, Martin discovers a secret past—and a forbidden story. Exquisitely photographed and acted, filmmaker Ernesto Contreras and his screenwriter sibling Carlos Contreras use language and metaphor to weave an unexpected and sensitive late-in-life coming-of-age film.
