We decided to stir things up a bit and looked into a film can only be viewed via Vitamine Cineville. In LA LLORONA, Guatemalan film director Jayro Bustamante combines a centuries old legend with a contemporary taboo in his country: the civil war and genocide that took place in the '80s. This film is on the shortlist for the Oscars of 2021.
