LisbonTalk – Conversation with Lucrecia Martel moderated by Cláudia Varejão

Ticket issuance will begin one hour before the beginning of the talk, at the Culturgest ticket office, subject to the venue’s maximum capacity.

With only four feature films in 15 years, the return of Lucrecia Martel to filmmaking is a cause for celebration and the pretext for a conversation with the world cult filmmaker of the new Argentine cinema, one of the most original voices of contemporary cinema. Catalogued as atmospheric and dedicated to matters such as morality, intimacy, and class in the context of the Argentine society, Martel’s cinema is characterized by a narrative minimalism, by an attention to the details of the gestures and the bodies, and a remarkable use of sound as an immersing element. Using her latest film, Zama, we will talk about her filmography, her characters, her vision of the world, and her process of questioning reality and discovering her own language.

Moderator: Cláudia Varejão (film director)
