In her heartfelt and powerful debut feature, Zapotec director Luna Marán encourages her father Jaime Luna (Uncle Yim), an indigenous philosopher, social leader, and singer-songwriter, to compose a new song about his life after 15 years of silence. This time, though, he does so alongside his family; their memories and interpretations are contradictory and painful. Uncle Yim is a powerful documentary that immerses us in the identity of a family shaped by tradition, music, and communality.
