In TREMORS, I wanted to understand how an educated man could end up caught up in his own particular prison.

Tremors

Temblores

Berlin Film Festival’s Silver Bear-winning director Jayro Bustamante (Ixcanul) delivers a complex and socially engaged LGBT drama set in the city of Guatemala. This Guatemalan-French co-production reunites the award-winning team from Ixcanul for a controversial story of love, family and religious bigotry.

Pablo is a 40-year-old married father of 2 wonderful children. A role model and a practicing evangelical Christian, his perfect traditional life begins to crack when he falls in love with a man. Pablo finds his feelings in conflict with beliefs. And his life becomes a hell of repressive intolerance when his family and his church decide to do whatever it takes to “cure him”, forcing Pablo to suppress his urges through therapy.
