Light Years: Lucrecia Martel and the Making of Zama
Argentina • 1h 11m
Directed by Manuel Abramovich • Documentary • With Lucrecia Martel • 2017 • 75 minutes
An illustration of filmmaking’s many stages — mysterious, delirious, playful, frustrated — and complex artistic collaboration with its subject, Manuel Abramovich’s new film concerns Lucrecia Martel during the making of her fourth feature, Zama. Light Years far surpasses the familiar form of behind-the-scenes features, proving as much an intimate portrait of the working artist as it does an emulation of Martel’s oblique, transcendental tendencies.
"Offering a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Zama, the doc is an intimate portrait of the Argentine director." —Remezcla
