Win Pablo Larain's EMA on Blu-ray


Preview by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING its In Competition World Premiere at the 2019 Venice Film Festival and a MUBI exclusive streaming release earlier this year, EMA will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on June 29, 2020 and is available to pre-order from here$.

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 starMariana 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 tracklist plucked straight from the streets of Valparaíso, Larraín’s latest is thrillingly defiant and palpably fresh. The film received its UK premiere at the 2019 BFI London Film Festival to great acclaim.
