Pablo Larraín | Chile | 102
2020. With Mariana Di Girolamo, Gael García Bernal, Paola Giannini, Santiago Cabrera. Adoptive parents Ema and Gastón are artistic free spirits in an experimental dance troupe whose lives are thrown into chaos when their son Polo is involved in a shockingly violent incident. Centering on the sinuous, electrifying art of reggaeton dance, Ema is an incendiary portrait of a lady on fire, the story of an artistic temperament forced to contend with societal pressure and the urge to conform. From world-class director Pablo Larraín (Jackie, Neruda) comes another psychologically acute exhumation of Latin American life under restriction featuring an unforgettable heroine who is determined to move freely through the world, as she electrifies everyone and everything around her.

THE RED SHOES
Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger | UK | 133
1948. With Anton Walbrook, Marius Goring, Moira Shearer. Powell and Pressburger’s influential backstage drama masterpiece is the story of a rising star ballerina (Shearer) who comes undone by her own perfectionism for her craft, while also becoming embroiled in a love triangle. Meticulously directed, with eye-popping Technicolor cinematography by Jack Cardiff, The Red Shoes features an unforgettable extended fantasy ballet, Oscar-winning art direction and musical score, and a memorable climax that tragically expresses about how art can completely consume a life.
