This weekend, Murray State's Cinema International features the 2016 film "Ixcanul."  (ish-cah-nuhl)  This 2016 Guatemalan film takes a classic story and sets it among that country's indigenous Mayan population.  It explores their culture and aspirations with breathtaking cinematography and a daring use of the native dialect.  Todd Hatton speaks with Cinema International Director Dr. Therese Saint Paul and Dr. Ben Post of MSU's Department of Global Languages and Theatre about "Ixcanul."
