Movie Info

Chac is a straightforward tale about a group of modern-day Mayans who are suffering a drought, and seek the assistance of their ancient rain-deity "Chac" to bring rain. For most of the story, the villagers are on a long pilgrimage to find a shaman who can put them in touch with the deity. In the latter part of the film, the shaman's efforts, at first apparently unsuccessful, reach a shocking culmination. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
