After nearly a decade, the elusive Argentine director Lucrecia Martel returns with the masterpiece Zama.
Martelâ€™s earlier films, such as The Headless Woman and La CiÃ©naga, hypnotized and confounded audiences and critics alike. This visionary of Latin American cinema has always been more concerned with creating an experience than telling a story, and Zama is no exception. It depicts the steady descent into madness of an officer of the Spanish crown in eighteenth-century South America. Itâ€™s a harsh (though occasionally comedic) critique of colonialism, and its violence and racism. It is also a sophisticated experiment in breaking down linear time, with dazzling visuals and an uncanny attention to the relation of sound and image. Zama is like nothing youâ€™ve ever seen. (2017, 115 min, digital)
Screening will be followed by a discussion with the director.
