"How far must a man go to find his destiny?" Based on the classic Argentinian novel of the same name, Zama takes place in a remote South American colony in the late 18th century as military officer Zama (Daniel Giménez Cacho) waits for a letter from the King granting him a better assignment. Under the inspired guidance of Argentinian auteur Lucrecia Martel (The Headless Woman), this film is a bold, dense, darkly humorous and endlessly inventive twist on colonialism and the period genre. Take it from us — there's absolutely nothing like it.

★★★★★ "A strange, sensual wonder."
— The Guardian
★★★★★ "One of the best movies of the year."
— Rolling Stone

Why You Should See This Film

Drawing comparisons to the work of Terrence Malick, Claire Denis & Werner Herzog but nevertheless marked by Martel's entirely unique cinematic voice, Zama is a glorious and complex work of art. Between its intoxicating visuals and fragmentary linearity, the film is an overwhelming sensory experience of the highest calibre.
