Overview

Award-winning director Pablo Larraín (Jackie, Neruda) delivers a bolt of electricity with dance-drama Ema, starring Gael García Bernal and breakout star Mariana Di Girolamo as highly volatile sparring partners. In Valparaíso, Chile, peroxide-blonde Ema (Di Girolamo) is a fiery and fiercely talented young dancer. Her passion lies in the reggaetón music she dances to in the streets of her portside city. She’s part of a contemporary dance ensemble overseen by her husband, demanding choreographer Gastón (Bernal). With a tragic incident leaving their relationship deeply scarred, the two lovers deal with their pain in wildly different and emotionally explosive ways.

“One of the year’s most dynamic and electrifying films”
— IndieWire

Why You Should See This Film

There are so many reasons you should see this film. Nicolás Jaar’s pulsing electronic score. Mariana Di Girolamo’s intensely physical, no-holds-barred performance. The hypnotic, life-giving dance scenes. The acid-hued, all-enveloping cinematography. Ema is hypersaturated cinematic seduction.
