“Las Marimbas del Infierno”, el último suspiro de la tradición popular

marimbas-del-infierno-400x576

¿Dónde se encuentra aquel sonido mágico que hacía de las tardes en las plazas un momento irrepetible? ¿Acaso se halla en los mp3, en los iPod, o en algún minicomponente?  ¿Dónde se encuentra aquel instrumento de madera, cuyo tamaño y apariencia semejaban la sonrisa de un gigante bonachón? ¿Acaso se halla en los antros, en los bares, o en la estación de la radio de la localidad?  Para muchos, la última vez que vimos o escuchamos una marimba, no fue en un mercado, mucho menos en un parque, sino en una pantalla de cine.

La modernidad se sustenta en temas superfluos cuyo abrazo asfixiante fustiga las tradiciones de aquellos destinados a desaparecer por su falta de sentido de la moda; por su marca de miseria incandescente y perpetua. Es raro encontrar en un mundo repleto de celulares y luces neón un espacio en donde se tenga contacto con el ayer. Al parecer se pretende borrar a la nostalgia del mapa.

Julio Hernández Cordón es un cineasta que apela por la supervivencia del folclore.  Él responde a los dogmas del sistema con una cinta que intenta derrumbar el sótano en donde se ha querido esconder a los colores y sonidos de las patrias marginadas, con el fin de impedir el último latido de sus costumbres. Las Marimbas del Infierno (2010) es la bocanada de oxigeno que lanza Hernández a la tradición popular.

La película del realizador, en cuya sangre corre esencia mexicana y guatemalteca, reúne a tres personas acorraladas por la pobreza, la violencia y la marginación.  “Don Alfonso” se dedica a tocar la marimba, gracias a ésta ha sobrevivido. Un día descubre que su instrumento ha perdido el interés de la gente. Él necesita dinero para poder pasar los días y debe conseguirlo con su marimba, ya que sin ella prácticamente deja de ser (“Siempre juntos” se lee en la madera de la percusión, y al parecer, dichas palabras  también están grabadas en el corazón del señor “Alfonso”). El “Chiquilín” es el responsable de reunir a “Don Alfonso” con “Blacko”, médico de profesión y amante del Heavy Metal underground. Los tres en un intento desesperado por  vivir haciendo lo que les gusta forman “Las Marimbas del Infierno”, fusión de metal y marimbas de donde emana un grito de rebeldía.

El también creador de Gasolina (2008), dota a su filme de un gesto alegre que hace llevadera la historia en sus momentos amargos. Respecto a su fotografía, la cámara fija ayuda a Hernández a mostrar el aspecto documental de su relato (además, lo favorece en cuanto al desarrollo de las posibilidades emocionales de sus actores). No son muchos los recursos técnicos en Las Marimbas del Infierno, ni siquiera cuenta con una producción ostentosa; sin embargo, su aspecto modesto no le resta originalidad ni atrevimiento.

El largometraje de Hernández puede verse como una cinta que abandona las fórmulas comerciales para arribar a los terrenos de lo arriesgado. Al final, puede entenderse como la nota de una marimba, disonante en un mundo pletórico  de sintetizadores y bits fluorescentes, que  se niega a desaparecer.
