The Swamp

Sunday 17th February 1:00 PM


Mercedes Moran, Graciela Borges, Martin Adjemian.
The best of New Argentine Cinema, Martel's atmospheric study of the lives of two women and their families in the small, provincial town of Salta has attracted festival plaudits from around the world. This debut feature is beautifully photographed and wonderfully acted, the film submerging the viewer in the day-to-day existence of the suburban middle class of Argentina.
Winner, Alfred Bauer Award, Berlin International Film Festival


“Martel's densely layered soundtrack is even more impressive than her distinctive, confident visuals”
