“Ch´ulel”, documental con alma

Ciudad de México.- Ante una sala con altas expectativas en Cineteca Nacional, el director Jorge Creuheras presentó Ch´ulel (2011), su primer filme documental. Previo al inicio de su obra, el joven realizador deslizó una atenta sugerencia a relajarnos y disfrutar de su largometraje.

Así comienza el viaje del espectador. El lente de Creuheras nos revela un lugar místico con un lago de agua quieta, unas montañas frondosas y un cielo tenue. Lentamente, la cámara se adentra en la vida y lucha de diversos pueblos del estado de Chiapas.

Con una fotografía sublime, clandestina, Creuheras y su equipo revelan a la audiencia la convivencia que acaece entre los pobladores de origen tzotzil y zoque con la madre tierra. Aire, tierra, agua y fuego se funden con la vida cotidiana de los habitantes de las comunidades, mostrando al ávido público cómo se vive cotidianamente. De ahí el título de la película. La palabra Ch´ulel —al igual que gran parte de la lengua tzotzil— no es traducible al español. Nombra la esencia o el alma de las cosas. El documental empieza a transmitir el ser del fuego y del aire —del agua y de la tierra— para mostrar la confluencia entre los diversos elementos que integran la naturaleza.

Conforme avanza, el filme captura las contradicciones entre la forma de vida ancestral indígena y el amplio fenómeno llamado globalización. Las aldeas llenas de paz y sabiduría son remplazadas por el ruido y la miseria propias de las ciudades. Asimismo, la música va dirigiendo las emociones mientras el espectador recorre las calles de San Cristóbal de las Casas, de Chiapa de Corzo, entre otras poblaciones.

En esa confrontación se encuentra una de los puntos más fuertes de la visión que ofrece Creuheras. La magia cede paso a la razón y la tecnología: el chamán deja su lugar a las tiendas de autoservicio. Indio y mestizo sufren ante la adustez de la modernidad.

Al hablar de uno de los temas más importantes de nuestra época, el director se sitúa a una distancia muy crítica de las promesas de la “civilización”, reflejadas en la televisión, los teléfonos de última generación, la moda, etc. En cambio, acoge con brazos abiertos a la artesanía milenaria, a la dignidad que radica en la diversidad, y muestra con emoción los usos y costumbres como otra forma de entender, respirar y vivir el mundo.

En sólo dos meses de grabaciones, Jorge Creuheras logra captar la esencia ambivalente del estado. La batalla entre la globalización contra todas las diferentes formas de conceptualizar la vida, la contradicción de ser indígena en una nación que no ha terminado por madurar y darle la dignidad correspondiente a sus pueblos originarios, hacen de Ch´ulel una joya del documental mexicano.
