Writer/Director Lucrecia Martel is scheduled to be present.
A medical symposium in the rundown Hotel Termas sets the stage for two teenage girls to explore their sexuality and converging spirituality with the hotel’s new visitors. The girls begin to discover the differences between sexual power and vulnerability. This very personal film is based on Martel’s own experiences and was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. A.O. Scott of The New York Times, called the film an “elusive, feverish, and altogether amazing ... Martel intimately explores the mysteries of the senses.” In Spanish with English subtitles. Contains mature content.
