Directed by Lucrecia Martel

Argentina/Brazil/Spain/Dominican Republic/France/Netherlands/Mexico/Switzerland/U.S./Portugal/Lebanon

Los Angeles Premiere!

After a nine-year hiatus, filmmaker Lucrecia Martel has returned triumphant with an elliptical adaptation of Antonio De Benedetto’s existential novel about a Spanish corregidor locked in nightmarish, bureaucratic stasis, waiting for news on his impending transfer. Thrown headfirst onto shore with our adrift, eponymous protagonist, the shroud over his future becomes increasingly opaque as more questions are posed than answered. An unsettling air of malaria and malaise permeate Zama’s lodgings and his bearings in this challenging, brilliant, intangibly Kafkaesque period piece, co-produced by Pedro Almodóvar and Gael García Bernal.

Distribution: Strand Releasing. Director: Lucrecia Martel. Screenwriter: Lucrecia Martel. Cast: Daniel Giménez Cacho, Lola Dueñas, Matheus Nachtergaele, Juan Minujín.

DCP, color, in Spanish with English subtitles, 115 min.

In Person: Lucrecia Martel.
