Lucrecia Martel’s
THE HEADLESS WOMAN

Tuesday, May 14

(2008) “Driving alone on a country road in Argentina, Verónica (Onetto) is momentarily distracted and hits something. The rear mirror reveals a dead dog. Shaken, she’s X-rayed at the hospital where her brother works. Then she continues life with family and friends, zoning in and out of conversations, but otherwise acting (mostly) quite ordinarily – until she tells her husband she may have killed someone. A deft, witty portrait of psychological and ethical alienation, hinged on Ornetto’s study in amiable vagueness, this evokes the effects of a shock (with sound and image arranged to take us inside Verónica’s bewildered consciousness) and suggests the moral concerns of a middle class quietly devoted to self-preservation.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out. 35mm print courtesy Walker Art Center. Approx. 87 min.

Part of Lucrecia Martel’s Salta Trilogy.
