Light Years

Part of the Documentaries Strand


“There’s a seemingly invisible feeling in Lucrecia’s pictures, something transcendental. Shooting a documentary portrait of Lucrecia Martel’s creative process during the filming of Zama was born out of my curiousity to unveil some of that mystery, that magic trick. Far from the idea of a ‘behind the scenes’, Light Years started out as a secondary film detached from the one she’s shooting. An intimate, observational documentary that would somehow allow us to get inside her head during that moment of creation.” – Manuel Abramovich
