Don Diego de Zama, an 18th century magistrate of the Spanish crown, carries his static and parasitic existence in a remote outpost in South America, infested by the robberies of legendary outlaw Vicuña Porto. In this hallucinatory adaptation of the homonymous novel by Argentinian writer Antonio di Benedetto, Martel creates a sumptuous and absurd mise-en-scène, and orchestrates an elliptical narration to criticize violent masculinity and racist power relations under colonialism.

 

Presented in partnership with Festival du nouveau cinéma, Concordia University and the Consulate General of Argentina in Montreal.
