The great Lucrecia Martel (The Headless Woman) returns with this epic new film adapted from Antonio Di Benedetto's classic of Argentine literature about the abuses of colonialism.

Don Diego de Zama (Daniel Cacho) is an officer in an unnamed colony of the 18th-century Spanish crown, desperate to return home to the city his family lives in. As his request gets repeatedly delayed by endless bureaucracy, Martel charts his decline with gorgeous visuals and a multi-layered soundscape.

Dreamlike and atmospheric, this is an intoxicating cinematic journey that marks a welcome return for one of cinema's greatest minds. Let's hope we don't have to wait another decade for the next one!
