Los Muertos
First screened in May 2014
Director: Lisandro Alonso. Cast: Argentino Vargas, Francisco Dornez, Yolanda Galarza, Victor Varela, Francisco Salazar. Screenplay: Lisandro Alonso.

Twitter Capsule: Taciturn, enigmatic, but no less a mission statement for a new genus of cinema than The Celebration or The 400 Blows.

VOR:   Many viewers will find their patience tested and their craving for story refused, which is quite the point. Daring recalibration of film's relation to tempo, incident, landscape.
