Double Feature with MUSEO

2017 • dir Lucrecia Martel w/Daniel Giménez Cacho • 115 min • DCP

Don Diego de Zama (Cacho), an officer of the Spanish Crown, waits in vain for a new assignment from the King while stagnating in an isolated outpost – he has already been waiting a long time. Set in 18th century South America, ZAMA, the latest from acclaimed Argentinian director Lucrecia Martel (La Cienaga), is a fever-dream excoriation of colonialism with a disheveled, frustrated diplomat at its core.

Staff Pick: Jessie

★★★★ “Some movies unfold as dreams; ‘Zama’ dances us playfully toward the edge of nightmare and then asks us to open our eyes.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

“With a richly textured visual technique and bone-dry humor, Martel takes no small pleasure in depicting the gears of colonialism grinding up its own.” – Sean Burns, The Artery
