Las Marimbas del Infierno (Marimbas from Hell) Julio Hernández Cordón. 75 min. 2010. Guatemala, Mexico, France. Don Alfonso plays the marimba (xylophone) for a living but as his traditional music is seen as increasingly old-fashioned, he finds himself without a job. When his glue-sniffing godson introduces him to Blacko, an old heavy-metal legend of the Guatemalan underground, they decide to do something radical and fuse the sounds of the marimba with heavy metal. This innovative—some might say bizarre—idea sparks the beginning of an unexpected collaboration.
