UC Santa Barbara professors Eloi Grasset (Spanish and Portuguese) and Cristina Venegas (Film and Media Studies) discuss Lucrecia Martel's adaptation of Antonio Di Benedetto's iconic Argentine novel about the interconnected decay of the Spanish empire and one of its low-level bureaucrats who is stationed in Paraguay. Grasset and Venegas examine Martel's approach to the interiority of Di Benedetto's novel and her expansion of the novel's critiques of colonialism. They also touch on the film's innovative use of sound. Recorded on 04/26/2018. (#33755)
