Event Description : 
Lightcube Film Society, with Embassy of Argentina in India at Bedlam, Hauz Khas Village present "A Series of Deceptions" The Films of Lucrecia Martel

Lucrecia Martel is an Argentine filmmaker who has been hailed all over the world for her    visionary treatment of the filmic narrative as a malleable, flexible entity. Martel’s films are    distilled through separate instances of pretence, disguise, subterfuge, denial, masquerade and    delusion. She uses these human tendencies to describe an Argentina ravaged by diverse    traumas: a tryst with dictatorship, a colonial past, a history of violence. Martel has stated that    her work is - much like Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ - an accumulation of multiple layers and    various realities. The present Retrospective exists therefore as a tribute to a body of work the    denseness of whose commentary is entirely unique in the world.

SCHEDULE

15th December

6PM: Opening

6:15 PM: Nueva Argiropolis, 2010, 8’

Snippets of news of something that might be happening upstream of Buenos Aires. This fictional story is loosely inspired by Argirópolis, capital of the proposed Confederation of Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay which Domingo Faustino Sarmiento suggested building on Martín García Island in 1850. Echoes of a founding movement.

6:30 PM: The Swamp, 2001, 143’
The release of Lucrecia aMartel’s The Swamp heralded the arrival of an astonishingly vital and original voice in Argentine cinema. With a radical and disturbing take on narrative, beautiful cinematography, and a highly sophisticated use of on- and offscreen sound, Martel turns her tale of a dissolute bourgeois extended family, whiling away the hours of one sweaty, sticky summer, into a cinematic marvel. This visceral take on class, nature, sexuality, and the ways that political turmoil and social stagnation can manifest in human relationships is a drama of extraordinary tactility, and one of the great contemporary film debuts. (Criterion Collection)

4 PM: The Silence, Ingmar Bergman, 1963, 96’
Two estranged sisters, Ester and Anna, and Anna's 10-year- old son travel to the Central European country on the verge of war. Ester becomes seriously ill and the three of them move into a hotel in a small town called Timoka.

7 PM: Dead King, 1995, 12’
A wife tries to leave her village to get away from her abusive husband.

7:15 PM: The Holy Girl, 2004, 106’
Amalia is an adolescent girl who is caught in the throes of her emerging sexuality and her deeply held passion for her Catholic faith. These two drives mingle when the visiting Dr. Jano takes advantage of a crowd to get inappropriately close to the girl. Repulsed by him but inspired by an inner burning, Amalia decides it is her God-given mission to save the doctor from his behavior,

3:30 PM: Love Streams, John Cassavetes, 1984, 141’
The electric filmmaking genius John Cassavetes and his brilliant wife and collaborator Gena Rowlands give luminous, fragile performances as two closely bound, emotionally wounded souls who reunite after years apart. Exhilarating and risky, mixing sober realism with surreal flourishes, Love Streams is a remarkable film that comes at the viewer in a torrent of beautiful, erratic feeling. This inquiry into the nature of love in all its forms was Cassavetes’s last truly personal work.

6:30 PM: Nueva Argiropolis, 2010, 8’ (Repeat)

Echoes of a founding movement.

6:45 PM: The Headless Woman, 2008, 87’
After hitting something with her car, a bourgeois Argentine woman's life slowly descends into paranoia and isolation, as she fears she may have killed someone.

8:30 PM: Closing Discussion + Dinner
