The Republic of Guatemala is a Central American country which historically formed the core of the Maya civilization, one of the most sophisticated and highly developed societies in the history of the Americas and the entire world. After being subjugated to Spanish rule, Guatemala gained independence in 1821 and became an independent republic in 1821.         A decades-long civil war that began in the 1950s provided the impetus for generations of Guatemalans to seek a better life abroad, often in Florida, Texas, and California.

Metro Los Angeles is home to one of the largest Guatemalan populations outside of Guatemala. Communities with substantial numbers of Guatemalans include the cities of Los Angeles, Long Beach, Hawthorne, Palmdale, Inglewood, Paramount and the unincorporated communities of Lennox and Val Verde.

Metro Los Angeles is also home to several notable Guatemalans, including the prominent street artist Mauricio “Cache” Reyes, as well as a plethora of Guatemalan restaurants serving up delicious traditional dishes.

Chapín is a word that many Guatemalans use to describe their ethnicity with pride, and the history of the word chapín dates back to the 15th century. Chapines were a type of platform that was popular in Spain. The footwear for which the Guatemalan nickname gained its name eventually disappeared and at present the name is very popular and is used as an adjective for a person who comes from Guatemala.

Two NFB shorts at the 2023 Fantasia film festival. Audrey Nantel-Gagnon’s Fire-Jo-Ball (NFB) and Janice Nadeau’s HARVEY (NFB/Folimage) will screen in competition at the festival

Montreal – WEBWIRE

The National Film Board of Canada returns to Montreals Fantasia International Film Festival with a documentary short and an animated short by two talented, award-winning women filmmakers: Audrey Nantel-Gagnons Fire-Jo-Ball, which will have its Montreal premiere, and Janice Nadeaus HARVEY. The films will be screened in competition, in the Fantastiques Week-ends du Cinma Qubcois program. HARVEY will also be presented in competition in the My First Fantasia youth program. The festival runs from July 20 to August 9, 2023.

Quick Facts

Fire-Jo-Ball by Audrey Nantel-Gagnon (16min54s) MONTREAL PREMIERE
Produced by Nathalie Cloutier for the NFBs Quebec, Canadian Francophonie & Acadian Documentary Studio
Press kit:

  • Jo-Ann, a 57-year-old bartender, dreams of becoming a singer and actress. Oscillating between spectacular and intimate, between extra and ordinary, Jo-Ann infuses her daily life (and the film) with true main-character energy. At the crossroads of genres, Fire-Jo-Ball paints a portrait of a woman who loves all things rosy, even if her life isnt always so. This short doc had its world premiere at the REGARD festival.
  • Audrey Nantel-Gagnons first film, Shirley Temple (UQAM, 2018), was screened around the world and won several significant awards. Moving between documentary and fiction, the filmmaker places her characters at the centre of her work. Her approach revolves around intimate moments and human relationships, resulting in a filmmaking style thats both accessible and dynamic. Fire-Jo-Ball is the product of a close collaboration between the director and the protagonist, who allowed themselves to dream together.

HARVEY by Janice Nadeau (9min)
Co-produced by Marc Bertrand (NFBs French Program Animation Studio) and Reginald de Guillebon (Folimage), with the support of the Centre national du cinma et de limage anime. Head of Development: Corinne Destombes (Folimage).
