Excellent film - but shame on the producers of the dvd


This is a unique and awe-inspiring film with a look into a strange world.

To make a film in Maya languages is a major achievement for which we should be grateful. But how can it be that the producers did not see it fit to include Spanish subtitles on the dvd? It seems very unethical to exclude the non-English-speaking population (Maya or Mestizo) of Mexico and Guatemala from appreciating the film.

DVDs are distributed to different markets in different forms. Are you saying that there is no Spanish-dubbed version?

reply

Yes, only the edition with English subtitles is available.

Now to dub the film, either in English or Spanish would be close to a crime. But subtitles in Spanish (as well as in English) shouldn't be too much to ask for.

I doubt if the money is available for that.
