The second film in Lucrecia Martel’s Salta Trilogy returns to the town of La Cienaga. This time we follow a pair of very religious teenage girls as new realities of sexuality and power intrude upon their lives. In 35mm.


Lucrecia Martel’s elusive, feverish and altogether amazing second feature seems to communicate as much to the nerves and skin as to the eyes and ears.” – A.O. Scott, The New York Times
