Los Muertos

Ongoing

35mm. The mesmerizing second feature by Argentinian director Lisandro Alonso (Liverpool, La Libertad) observes a middle-aged man named Vargas on his last two days of a long prison sentence and on his first two days of freedom. Alonso sustains a subtle atmosphere of dread and mystery throughout Vargas’s trancelike journey into the jungle and upriver, as he reacquaints himself with the natural world in all its beauty and brutality.
