Support UAlberta's Global Service Learning program (GSL) and join us for a special screening of the award-winning film Ixcanul, directed by Jayro Bustamante. The GSL program takes students on a service learning trip to Guatemala to work on volunteer projects beneficial to local communities through our host organization, Entremundos. Students learn about social issues, poverty, and work towards becoming global citizens and leaders. Proceeds of ticket sales will go to support the GSL program.

Ixcanul is set in a village built on the slopes of a volcano, where Maria and her parents cultivate coffee. She has been promised to a man in an arranged marriage, but wants to emigrate to the United States. It is the first film produced in the Kaqchikel language of the Mayan family.
