2022 NC Latin American Film Festival & Screen/Society present:

 

Rojo
(Benjamín Naishtat, 2018, 109 min, Argentina, Spanish w/ English subtitles, Color, DCP)

—Introduced by Mellon Visiting Professor Sebastián Carassai (CLACS)

In the mid-seventies, a strange man arrives in a quiet provincial city. In a restaurant, without any apparent reason, he starts insulting Claudio, a renowned lawyer. The community supports the lawyer and the stranger is humiliated and thrown out of the place. Later that night the stranger, who is determined to wreak a terrible vengeance, intercepts Claudio and his wife Susana. The lawyer then takes a path of no return involving death, secrets and silences.

 

Rojo uses both familiarity and distanciation to depict a society that never appears that different from the world we know, a mystery thriller of sorts that’s both about its moment, and disturbingly timeless.” – Jonathan Romney, Film Comment

 

Screen/Society screenings are free and open to the public. (COVID-19 Info)
