GRLAFF 2012: Las Marimbas del infierno (Marimbas from Hell)

8pm, Saturday March 31 at Wealthy Theatre

2010 – Guatemala/ France/ México, 73 min. – NR

Directed by Julio Hernández Cordon

Spanish with English Subtitles
When marimba player Don Alfonso loses his gig in a musical revue in a swanky Guatemala City hotel — among other setbacks — he sadly faces the notion that there may not be a future in playing the traditional music he loves. Introduced by his godson to the eccentric heavy metal musician Blacko, Don Alfonso makes a wild proposition: that they meld their favorite musical genres in a heavy metal band to be called Marimbas from Hell.
