The Holy Girl

(La niña santa, Lucrecia Martel, 2004)

Sat, Apr 21, 2018 7 PM

Martel’s sophomore film follows a young girl whose deep sense of spirituality intertwines with her burgeoning sexuality. Set in a hotel during a conference for ear, nose, and throat doctors, The Holy Girl captures an accidental love triangle that emerges amid a nuanced atmosphere of desire and guilt. Martel makes meticulous use of sound to reveal character details throughout—from one’s pivotal experience in a theremin concert to another’s ear-ringing tinnitus. (106 mins., 35mm)
