Writer/Director Lucrecia Martel is scheduled to be present.

The release of La Ciénaga heralded the arrival of an astonishingly vital and original voice in Argentine cinema. With a radical and disturbing take on narrative, beautiful cinematography, and a highly sophisticated use of sound, Martel turns her tale of a dissolute bourgeois extended family 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. In Spanish with English subtitles. Contains mature content.
