By February 11, 2021 No Comments

IC co-director Doug Weatherford speaks with Ozan Mermer, director of Yib (2019), a documentary in Spanish and Chuj-Maya that follows a bi-national youth choir whose members belong to a community artificially divided by the Mexico-Guatemala border. The film’s title alludes to the idea of “roots”, and, in this podcast, the German-born director with a multi-national background discusses his personal connection to the story and his decision to attend film school in Mexico.
