Coming Soon

In a remote South American colony in the late 18th century, Zama (Daniel Giménez Cacho), an officer of the Spanish Crown born in South America, waits for a letter from the King granting him a transfer from the town in which he is stagnating, to a better place. His situation is delicate. He must ensure that nothing overshadows his transfer. He is forced to accept submissively every task entrusted to him by successive Governors who come and go as he stays behind, suffering small humiliations and petty politicking as he increasingly succumbs to lust and paranoia.... Adapted from Antonio di Benedetto’s 1956 classic of Argentinean literature, this hypnotic drama is written and directed by Lucrecia Martel (La Ciénaga, The Holy Girl). Argentina’s official submission for Best Foreign Language Film consideration at the 90th Academy Awards. (Fully subtitled)
