LUCRECIA MARTEL RETROSPECTIVE

NEW DELHI

CURATORIAL NOTE

READ

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.
