White Wall Cinema's Socially Distanced Winter Screen presents



DIRECTOR: Pablo Larrain


STARRING: Mariana Di Girolamo, Cristian Suares, Gael García Bernal, Paola Giannini and Santiago Cabrera.

One of the most aesthetically magnificent directors of recent times, Larrain's follow up to his English language debut Jackie (Natalie Portman as the titular first lady) sees him return to the streets of his native Chile to create Ema. Starring newcomer Mariana Di Girolamo alongside frequent Larrain colloborator Gael García Bernal, Ema is a visually grandiose hard edged drama that employs elements of thriller, horror, contemporary dance and literal fire to create an enigmatic drama about a young dancer who alongside her husband, returns a child they have adopted after a dramatic incident. The deep regret that follows leads Ema to break free to explore a world of physical freedom, psychological manipulation, and pyromania, breaking open the boundaries of the body, dance, societal conventions, sexuality and motherhood inside Larrain's dazzling landscape. Dream like and gritty at the same time Ema's visceral use of photography, colour and movement, alongside a hypnotic electronic score by Nicolas Jaar. make for entirely modern big screen cinematic experience.
