An unforgettable new film from the writer and director of Ixcanul, Jayro Bustamante, follows financial consultant, Pablo (Juan Pablo Olyslager), who knows that while much of the life he has lived over the past 40 years has been a lie, the price his church and family are about to extract for revealing his relationship with Francisco (Mauricio Armas Zebadua) will be steep. Immediately banished from his upper-middle-class home, Pablo takes up residence in a small, gritty apartment in downtown Guatemala City as his beautiful wife Isa (Diane Bathen) turns to their evangelical community in hopes of convincing him of repentance and the possibility of a faith-based "cure."

9:00pm: Birds of Passage

Set in the land of the Wayuu, indigenous people of northern Colombia’s lush desert region who are customarily wary of outsiders, the film tracks over a decade of warring clans as they grow into full-blown drug mobs. It’s 1968 and Raphayet, a poor farmer, cannot afford the dowry required to wed the daughter of a prominent Wayuu family steeped in ritual. After stumbling upon Americans from the peace corps who are looking for marijuana, he impulsively jumps at the opportunity to make money. What begins as a simple scheme to be worthy of his wife’s family turns swiftly into a multi-year crime saga of grand proportions drawing in multiple Wayuu families and igniting a blaze of grudges, feuds, and power-plays.
