In the Limelight: Lucrecia Martel

with Lucrecia Martel

Stark realism and shocking truths can be both thought-provoking and captivating. How does auteur Lucrecia Martel (THE HEADLESS WOMAN, THE SWAMP) manage to tell stories about people under pressure, showing us things that are hard to watch and simultaneously spellbinding? In what ways can filmmakers build an oppressive atmosphere, depict destitute characters and develop their stories into an engrossing narrative?
