Born in Salta, Argentina, Lucrecia Martel premiered her debut feature film LA CIÉNAGA (The Swamp) in 2001, followed by LA NIÑA SANTA (The Holy Girl) in 2004 and LA MUJER SIN CABEZA (The Headless Woman) in 2008. Her fourth feature, ZAMA (2017), an exploration of colonialism and racism in Latin America, had its premiere in the Venice International Film Festival. Retrospectives of her work have screened at many art and cultural institutions such as Harvard, MoMA, Lincoln Center, Cambridge and London’s Tate Museum.

In parallel, Martel has also shown an interest in other artistic languages outside cinema. Her latest collaboration was with Björk, taking on the direction of her concert CORNUCOPIA at The Shed, acknowledged as the most sophisticated show given by the Icelandic artist to date.
