A boundary-pushing cinematic exercise... undoubtedly one of the best films of the year.
A supernatural allegory about modernity.
In its mix of social realism and dream-like strangeness, this Bolivian film is pretty much Ken Loach meets David Lynch.
As exhilarating and revelatory as it is disturbing.
A work both fascinating in its suggestions and beautiful in its compositions.
Surreal and ridiculous and charming.
A soaring depiction of life.
Expanding on the hybrid narrative of his remarkable 2016 film Dark Skull, Kiro Russo has mounted a monumental, gently mystical portrait of the contemporary central South American cityscape and those who work within its bowels and environs. Set in the alternately harsh and beautiful terrain of La Paz, Bolivia and its surrounding rural areas, El Gran Movimiento follows a young miner as he looks for work alongside his friends, even as he begins to descend into a mysterious sickness. With its marvelous long-lens zoom work and increasingly dynamic, rhythmic editing, Russo’s film is a hypnotic journey into a psychological space that touches upon the supernatural. An NYFF59 selection. A KimStim release.
