TEMBLORES

TREMORS

Directed by Jayro Bustamante

Cast: Juan Pablo Olyslager, Mauricio Armas, Diane Bathen, María Telón

Jayro Bustamante’s searing follow-up to Ixcanul (Guatemala’s 2015 Oscar submission) targets homophobia among the wealthy and powerful, captivating audiences at this year’s Berlinale. “Reparative therapy” isn’t just for teenagers — here, middle-aged husband and father Pablo is forced by his influential family to undergo this torturous process after they discover his sexuality. Stripped of his job and access to his children, he finds himself subjugated to very un-Christian treatment as he seeks to fulfill his proscribed role in a patriarchy that is hesitant to accept change.
