Lucrecia Martel's Salta Trilogy

One of the most vital and exciting voices in modern cinema, writer-director Lucrecia Martel made her feature film debut in 2001 with LA CIENAGA, set in her home province of Salta, Argentina. Together with her two subsequent films, THE HOLY GIRL and THE HEADLESS WOMAN, it forms the troika of thematically unified films we refer to as The Salta Trilogy. We revisit all three of these works and welcome a special guest, Gerd Gemünden, author of the new critical study “Lucrecia Martel” from the University of Illinois Press, for a special introduction and discussion to accompany the final film in the series, THE HEADLESS WOMAN.
