Don Diego de Zama (Cacho), an officer of the Spanish Crown, waits in vain for a new assignment from the King while stagnating in an isolated outpost—he has already been waiting a long time. Set in 18th century South America, ZAMA, from acclaimed Argentinian director Lucretia Martel (La Cienaga), is a fever-dream excoriation of colonialism with a disheveled, frustrated diplomat at its core.
