Sex, Power And Chaos In Pablo Larrain’s EMA UK Trailer


MUBI have released the UK Trailer for Pablo Larrain‘s EMA. The acclaimed Chilean director (who directed also Neruda,Jackie) film also has a new release as the film heading directly streaming service in May.

Like many films worldwide, this one misses out it’s cinema release. Thankfully now subscribers to the streaming service will see the film exclusively online.

Once again the director works with his frequent collaborator Gael García Bernal. The Mexican actor is not the lead with actress from rising star Mariana Di Girolamo. The film an intoxicating comment on sex, power and chaos in modern-day Chile. She plays a young dancer stuck in a marriage falling apart when the pair fell apart thanks to an incident with their adopted child.

Visionary director Pablo Larraín (Jackie, Neruda) returns with the dazzling Ema, an intoxicating comment on sex, power and chaos in modern-day Chile. Knife-sharp and unapologetically punk, it’s a whirlwind of provocative, no-holds-barred anarchy, anchored by a searing central performance from rising star Mariana Di Girolamo.

Ema (Di Girolamo) is a young dancer in a reggaeton troupe: effortlessly magnetic and dangerously impulsive. Her toxic marriage to older choreographer Gastón (Gael García Bernal) is beyond repair, following a rash decision to hand their adopted child Polo back into the hands of the state. Racked with regret, she sets out on a mission to get her son back, not caring who she’ll need to fight, seduce or destroy to make it happen.

Driven by an electrifying original score by Nicolas Jaar and a reggaeton tracklist plucked straight from the streets of Valparaíso, Larraín’s latest is thrillingly defiant and palpably fresh. The film screened In Competition at 2019 Venice Film Festival.

The film also stars Paola Giannini, and Santiago Cabrera.

EMA will be streaming exclusively on MUBI in the UK and Ireland from 2nd May.
