La ciénaga

Lucrecia Martel / AR, ES, FR, JP, 2001 / 103 min.

This cinematic wonder by Lucrecia Martel chronicles the disintegration of a wealthy family: red wine binges, murky swimming pools, spectral grandmothers, girl crushes and mad dogs. A ominous and sweltering debut that gets deep under the skin.

Poster La cienaga

A ramshackle family in the small provincial town of Salta in Argentina is the perfect vehicle for director Martel’s sultry film about class differences, nature, sexuality, political unrest and stagnation.

50 Years of IFFR, 75 Years of Filmmuseum

The anniversary programme Vive le cinéma! embraces film as the seventh art and offers a survey of films that have defined the history of the IFFR and Eye Filmmuseum.
