New South American Cinema
For its New South American Cinema Series, Filmatique is hosting four films from exciting new voices in South America.
Brazilian filmmakers Helvecio Marins Jr. & Clarissa Campolina's documentary Girimunho captures the slow, circling rhythms of Brazil's arid north, while Adrián Saba's debut El limpiador evokes the isolation of modern life in sci-fi future in which Lima has been decimated by a mysterious virus. Paraguayan filmmaker Arami Ullón's first feature film documents the guilt and heartbreak of her mother's final days, while director Julia Vargas Weise's third feature Carga Sellada commits to allegory a famed ecological disaster in 1995 Bolivia.
Featuring the works of three female filmmakers, three feature debuts and official Foreign Language Oscar submissions from Peru, Paraguay and Bolivia, Filmatique's New South American Cinema series portrays the shifting landscape of auteur cinema in an increasingly diverse continent.
