La Flor: Part I + introduction with Mariano Llinás
Institute of Contemporary Arts

La Flor, dir. Mariano Llinás, Argentina 2018, 14 hrs. 28 min., Spanish with English subtitles

Over 800 minutes long and a decade in the making, Argentinian filmmaker Mariano Llinás’ La Flor defies cinematic convention. Comprised of six independent, successive stories, the film’s complex narrative is connected by four actresses (Pilar Gamboa, Elisa Carricajo, Laura Paredes and Valeria Correa), who play radically different roles throughout the film’s epic length. Ambitiously moving across different genres and styles – from B-movie to musical to thriller – the film is a profound reflection on duplicity, illusion and the nature of cinema itself.

This screening will be preceded by an introductory conversation between director Mariano Llinás and scholar and Erika Balsom. Erika Balsom is a scholar and critic based in London, working on cinema, art, and their intersection.
