It's hard to resist a film with a title like Marimbas From Hell. Boldly exploring the boundaries of fiction and documentary, emerging Guatemalan filmmaker Julio Hernández Cordón’s original and entertaining second feature follows three unlikely characters from Guatemala City as they attempt to fuse improbable musical styles. The result is a skillfully constructed narrative that reflects on important issues in contemporary Guatemalan culture.
Directed by: Júlio Hernández Cordón
Running Time: 75 minutes
This event is free and open to the campus and community.
