About this submission

The effects of Guatemala's civil war are still quite present in its population. Besides racism and ethnic differences, Guatemala's people are still waiting for answers and for people to come home. With an outcome of around two-hundred thousand deaths and forty-five thousand forced disappearance victims, many families are still incomplete. I chose to tell this story as an attempt to merge beliefs between the two main ethnicities in the country: the Mayan and the Ladino. These beliefs merge in this film as a sign of hope, through one of Guatemala's most popular tales.
