A young linguist seeks to document a dying language that exists deep within the Mexican jungle, in this visually compelling meditation on love, language, and cultural destruction.

University researcher Martin (Fernando Alvarez Rebeil), a hot combination of intelligence and good looks, turns up in a small jungle settlement in Mexico’s Vera Cruz province in search of the two remaining speakers of the Zikril language. One problem: these two men have not spoken to
each other in fifty years, and have no intention of starting now. Perplexed by the men's intensity toward one another, Martin suspects there must be more to the story.

With stunning sound and cinematography, filmmaker siblings Ernesto and Carlos Contreras imaginatively use language and metaphor in I Dream in Another Language to weave an unexpected and transcendental love story.
