Cinematek has invited the Argentinian director Lisandro Alonso to Brussels for a retrospective and a carte blanche.
His films are characterized by their minimal dialogue, slow rhythm, the absence of a clear plot, and tremendous beauty.
Among others, Cinematek is screening his cinematic debut La libertad (2001), which sketches a day in the life of a young lumberjack on the pampa.
Jauja (2014), in which Viggo Mortensen plays a Danish soldier who is searching Patagonia for his young daughter who ran away.
Alonso is coming to talk about his work and selected a number of his favourite films, including Eraserhead by David Lynch.
