Lucrecia Martel wrote and directed “Terminal Norte”, a documentary unitary that accompanies the confinement in the north of the country of the singer Julieta Laso and her complicity with other artists in the region. It will premiere next Tuesday, September 7 at 20 on the public platform Contar. The premiere will be preceded by a live event from the Sala Argentina of the Kirchner Cultural Center, which will feature the presence of Martel and a musical presentation of Laso that can also be seen by streaming from 18.In this documentary co-produced between REI Cine and Contar, the director of “La niña santa” and “Zama” shows her protagonist rehearsing songs from the eclectic repertoire that characterizes her, with his regular collaborator, Noelia Sinkunas, and the Salta master of guitar makers Bubu Ríos.
But in addition, between adobe stoves, surrounded by the nocturnal sound of nature, it is host to a coven of diverse music, twinned by Salta, the geography that sheltered them or saw them born. Among them are the coplera Mariana Carrizo; Lorena Carapachay, the first trans coplera of the Calchaquí valleys; B Yami, the emerging female trap icon and Las Whisky, a feminist noise duo, among others.” A pleasure to have participated in this incredible project,” Sinkunas said on his Instagram account, while Carrizo said: “With joy and pride we share the first preview,” next to the trailer. Recall that Martel was summoned by the multifaceted Icelandic artist Björk to direct her show, and also by the Venice Film Festival as president of the jury.
