Classic World Cinema at Flood Gallery
Friday, July 27 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
July 27 ~ “La Cienaga”
Director: Lucrecia Martel (Argentina 2001; 103 min)
With a radical and disturbing take on narrative, beautiful cinematography, and a highly sophisticated use of on- and offscreen sound, female director Lucrecia Martel turns her tale of a dissolute bourgeois extended family, whiling away the hours of one sweaty, sticky summer, into a cinematic marvel. This visceral take on class, nature, sexuality, and the ways that political turmoil and social stagnation can manifest in human relationships is a drama of extraordinary tactility, and one of the great contemporary film debuts.
