MUBI Unveil The Trailer, Poster and Photo Set For EMA From Visionary Director Pablo Larraín Ahead Of Its May Release
The Fan Carpet are excited to bring you the Trailer, Poster and Photo set for Pablo Larraín’s EMA, ahead of its debut on MUBI.
EMA, an intoxicating comment on sex, power and chaos in modern-day Chile, follows visionary director’s Pablo Larraín’s acclaimed works JACKIE (2016), NERUDA (2016) and NO (2012). Knife-sharp and unapologetically punk, the film is a whirlwind of provocative, no-holds-barred anarchy, anchored by a searing central performance from rising star Mariana Di Girolamo alongside Gael García Bernal (MOZART IN THE JUNGLE, THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES).
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 Nicolás Jaar and a reggaeton track list plucked straight from the streets of Valparaíso, Larraín’s latest is thrillingly defiant and palpably fresh.
EMA IS RELEASED ON MUBI 2 MAY
