Pobo “Tzu” – White Night

Pobo “Tzu” – Noche Blanca

European Premiere
In 1982, the Chichonal volcano erupted, burying numerous towns including the Zoque community of Esquipulas Guayabal. Years later, the inhabitants of Nuevo Guayabal rebuild their lives as the volcano and the buried town lurk in the undergrowth. Trinidad, a poet born on the day of the eruption, has oneiric visions that quickly spread through his community, sparking a collective effort to unearth their old town, at the same time that the presence of the Piowachue (the spirit of the volcano according to Zoque worldview) strengthens among the community.
