Pablo Larraín (Jackie, Neruda) returns with the dazzling Ema, an intoxicating comment on sex, power and chaos in modern-day Chile. Driven by an electrifying original score by Nicolas Jaar, it’s a whirlwind of provocative, no-holds-barred anarchy, anchored by searing central performances from rising star Mariana Di Girolamo and Gael García Bernal.
Ema is a magnetic and impulsive dancer in a reggaeton troupe. Her toxic marriage to choreographer Gastón is beyond repair, following a decision to give up on their adopted child Polo. She sets out on a mission to get him back, not caring who she’ll need to fight, seduce or destroy to make it happen.
