RHYTHMS ON AND OFF THE SCREEN

Argentina

Zonda: folclore argentino

CARLOS SAURA
Argentina, Spain, 2015
85 minutes, Color
Official website

With this, the latest in his series of sensuous explorations of Ibero-American culture, Spanish master Carlos Saura captures the songs, dances, and colors that make up Argentina's gorgeous and unique traditional music. From the Pampas to the Andes and everywhere in between, Saura and his team seek out the particular sounds of each region and its performers, united as they so often are by a distinctive brand of nostalgia, an elegiac beauty, and a profound passion that offers a marked contrast to the stereotype of Argentine reserve. Artists such as Mercedes Sosa, Chaqueño Palavecino, Lucho González, Ballet Nuevo Arte Nativo de Koki, Pajarin Saavedra, Melania Pérez, Atahualpa Yupanqui, Jaime Torres, Soledad Pastorutti, Orquesta Popular Los Amigos Del Chango, Lito Vitale, and Pedro Aznar are immortalized on the big screen in Argentina, a journey through a musical landscape teeming with bold style and a vibrant heart.—Miami International Film Festival

In Spanish with English subtitles

Reception following April 16 screening
