THE RARE PERFECTION OF LUCRECIA MARTEL

August 26-28 at the Trylon

Argentine director Martel’s films are demanding and deeply intellectual, yet approachable. Critic David Oubiña has called her work “a rare perfection.” Presented here are two of her finest features, which follow women in the northern Argentina town of Salta and blend the personal and the political.

This meticulous vision of social decay put Martel on the map. FRI 7:00 SAT 9:00 SUN 3:00
