Saturday, April 25, at 7:00 pmBest Film of the 2010s?ZAMAArgentina/Spain/France/Netherlands/USA/Brazil/Mexico/Portugal/Lebanon/Switzerland, 2017, Lucrecia MartelVoted the best film of the 2010s by a group of critics, programmers, and filmmakers surveyed by Film Comment magazine, the latest film by Argentinean master Lucrecia Martel is set in a remote, tropical, colonialist outpost somewhere in South America during the 18th century. An ineffectual functionary working for the Spanish crown waits in vain for a transfer to Buenos Aires or back home. Martel’s singular movie, which we premiered locally two years ago and have wanted to show again, is dense, languorous, perplexing, comic, and intoxicating. Subtitles. DCP. 115 min. Special event pricing $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
