Pablo Larraín: Chilean director on Ema

From Saturday Morning, 11:05 am on 1 August 2020

Chilean film-maker Pablo Larraín, whose previous films include No, the Oscar-nominated Jackie, and Neruda, teams up Mexican actor Gael García Bernal and newcomer Mariana Di Girolamo in Ema.

A story about family, dance, passion and the pressures of parenthood, Ema is visually striking and set to a powerful 'reggaetón' soundtrack in the Chilean port city of Valparaíso.

Ema had its online premiere on Friday 31 July as part of Whānau Marama: New Zealand International Film Festival and is available to watch online until Thursday 6 August. It also shows at selected Auckland cinemas until Tuesday 4 August. Screening info here.
