Location: Bartos Screening Room

Special Sneak Preview Screening

Dir. Francisca Alegría. Chile. 2022, 93 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles. With Mia Maestro, Enzo Ferrada Rosati, Benjamin Soto. Alegría’s poignant and stunning debut feature begins in a river in the south of Chile where fish are dying due to pollution from a nearby factory. Amid their floating bodies, long-deceased Magdalena bubbles up to the surface gasping for air, bringing with her old wounds and a wave of family secrets. This shocking return sends her widowed husband into turmoil and prompts their daughter Cecilia to return home to the family’s dairy farm with her children. A lyrical rumination on family, nature, renewal, and resurrection, The Cow Who Sang a Song into the Future is an ambitious proposal for acceptance and healing, suggesting that the dead return when they are most needed.
