El Planeta

Wednesday 8 December | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

El Planeta
USA, 2021. Directed by Amalia Ulman. 79 min. NR

Amidst the devastation of post-crisis Spain, mother (Ale Ulman) and daughter (Amalia Ulman) bluff and grift to keep up the lifestyle they think they deserve, bonding over common tragedy and an impending eviction.

A dark comedy, El Planeta explores the trials of contemporary poverty, female desire, and the complicated filial relationships between mothers and daughters.

Presented in Spanish and English with English Subtitles.

“Absurdly and assuredly packed jack-in-the-box that’s short, sweet, and, incidentally, a quirky sharp, vainglorious commentary on these post-crisis, Robinhood Redditor times.“ – Andrew Bundy , The Playlist

There’s a fine, even invisible, line between dignity and denial in “El Planeta,” a fine-grained portrait of everyday poverty amid the lingering wreckage of the global financial crisis. Yet this pithy, distinctive debut feature from artist-turned-filmmaker Amalia Ulman eschews kitchen-sink realism for a deadpan vein of black comedy” – Guy Lodge, Variety
