Exploring the greater consequences of ‘language death’ on society through two men’s decades-long silence. Linguistics professor Martin visits San Isidro to study the ancient language Zikril. There are only a few native speakers left and Martin meets with Dona Jacinta and Don Isauro to record their conversations and truly understand the Zikril ciulture. Jacinta passes away to “The Enchantment,” a mystical place only the Zikril people are allowed to enter. Needing another native speaker to complete his work, Martin reaches out to Don Evaristo who hasn’t spoken to Isauro in 50 years, apparently due to the two men fighting over the same woman. Evaristo’s granddaughter tells Martin the truth about their relationship in hopes that they could be together again someday in The Enchantment. This haunting and succulent film is like no other. In Spanish with English subtitles. (DG)
