Previously at the ICA - Seasons
1 Apr 2016 – 5 Apr 2016
To celebrate the release of Pablo Larraín’s latest feature film The Club, the ICA, Network Releasing and the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama present a retrospective of the Oscar-nominated director’s work.
Starring Larraín’s long time collaborator Alfredo Castro, The Club was nominated for Best Motion Picture Foreign Language at Berlin International Film Festival and won the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize. Larraín gained critical acclaim on the festival circuit with his first feature-length film Fuga which was released in 2006. His second film Tony Manero debuted at Cannes Film Festival in 2008 as part of Directors’ Fortnight, and in 2010 Post Mortem premiered in Official Competition at Venice Film Festival. The following year his fourth feature NO, which starred Gael Garcia Bernal, premiered at Director’s Fortnight at Cannes Film Festival where it won the Art Cinema Award. It was also nominated for an Academy Award in 2012 for Best Foreign Language Film.
Larraín is one of the most prolific Latin-American directors of our time. His Pinochet trilogy (Tony Manero, Post Mortem, NO) has been recognised as a clear critique of the dictator’s leadership while full of the dark humour for which he is renowned.
