Albertina Carri at Kino Arsenal: "La Rabia"
31.08.2021 / 19:00 – 22:00
With Albertina Carri
Filmmaker Albertina Carri (b. 1973) became known in 2000 as a protagonist of Nuevo Cine Argentino. This movement comprising two generations of filmmakers broke with conventional narrative cinema to establish a new filmic language for reflecting on the increasing roles of impoverishment and systematic exclusion in their society. Carri has evolved into a multi-faceted artist. In her films, television series, video installations, and as a curator, producer, and festival organizer—she is the founder of Asterisco, her country’s first LGBTIQ film festival—she always provides for unpredictable, critical, and disturbing moments. On August 31 at Kino Arsenal, she presents her fourth feature film La Rabia (Anger, Argentina / NL 2008): a story of social brutalization featuring a soundtrack of the Pampas, told from a young girl’s perspective. Screened as director’s choice is Pasolini’s film Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma (I / F 1975), in which four tormentors subject girls and boys to their sexual perversions in a villa.
