IXOK-WOMAN is the story of two Guatemalan exiles, Carmen and Edgar, who recall their life-drama in their play IXOK (means woman in the Maya-language). This documentary-feature takes us from Guatemala and across to Europe to France, Germany and Austria: in so doing it maintains the fine balance between the different cultures. Despite their fear of frontiers, brought on by Edgar's experiences in Guatemala, Carmen and Edgar persevere across borders taking their Guatemalan message to European audiences. The special feature of this film is how it depicts the power and dignity of the people in the Third World, most poignantly shown through Carmen's plays and her expression of feelings.
