I Dream in Another Language (Sueño en otro idioma) directed by Ernesto Contreras (Mexico, 2017, 103 min.). Spanish with English subtitles.

Winner of the Audience Award in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, I Dream in Another Language tells the story of a linguist who arrives in a small jungle settlement in the state of Veracruz, Mexico, hoping to record a conversation between the last two remaining speakers of the Zikril language. Unfortunately for him, his two elderly subjects are feuding and haven’t spoken to each other in 50 years.
