    • Synopsis
    • With a voice broken by alcohol and a family history that exposes both their legacy and contradictions, Jaime Martinez Luna, Uncle Yim, singer and songwriter, Zapotecan philosopher and forest defender, after 15 years of silence composes a song about his life. But this time he writes it together with his family, and their perspectives on the story are contradictory. Uncle Yim is an immersion into the depths of a family marked by celebration, music and communality.
