• Lucrecia Martel has made only four feature films to date, but has nonetheless become one of the world’s most admired directors. Her work is extraordinarily sensitive to the limits of sensory perception, the limits imposed by gender roles, and the limits of empathy and affect across social divisions. This edited collection broadens the critical conversation around Martel’s work by integrating analyses of her features with the less frequently studied short films and her other artistic projects. This volume’s fresh, holistic approach to Martel’s career includes contributions from scholars in Latin America, Europe and the United States, and ends with a new interview with Martel herself.
