Lucrecia Martel’s lavishly composed eighteenth-century period drama, Zama, follows a Spanish colonial officer as he futilely awaits a transfer from Paraguay to Argentina. Based on a 1956 novel by Argentine writer Antonio di Benedetto, Martel’s directorial voice shifts perspective to center the voices of its women and Indigenous characters.
