Master director Lucrecia Martel plays with the profound and the absurd in this unprecedented deconstruction of the history of colonial Argentina, heralded as her most ambitious and brilliant work to date. Her subject is the fictional Don Diego de Zama, a middle-aged functionary in a remote colonial outpost in 18th century Argentina, awaiting word of a transfer back to Buenos Aires that is taking too long to arrive.
