Winner of the Sundance Film Festival Audience Award for World Cinema, I Dream in Another Language follows a young linguist into the jungles of Mexico as he tries to learn about – and ultimately preserve – a mysterious indigenous language.
This language, he soon discovers, is on the verge of completely disappearing. There are only two men left in the world who speak it. After a fight fifty years ago, the two refuse to speak a word with one another. Trying to bring the two old friends back together, he discovers that hidden in their past, in the heart of the jungle, lies a secret gay romance.
Director Ernesto Contreras, a former winner of the Sundance Institute/Mahindra Global Filmmaking Award, helms this powerful new romantic drama – his most acclaimed accomplished film yet.
