Mark Street’s Hasta Nunca at Anthology Film Archives Sept. 26

Posted September 11th, 2013 in Events and Screenings, News / Events

Mark Street will be in-person with his new film Hasta Nunca at Anthology Film Archives on September 26th – 2 showings 7:15 and 9:15PM.

HASTA NUNCA follows Mario Ligetti, a middle-aged DJ in Montevideo, Uruguay whose call-in radio show exposes the city’s “Secrets and Stories”. As Mario’s life becomes more entangled with those of his callers and listeners, his public and private personas are blurred and the intimate nuances of a city and its residents are revealed.

The film is the product of a close collaboration between filmmaker Mark Street and an Uruguayan cast and crew, led by producer Uzi Sabah and lead actor Rufo Martínez, a real-life DJ and television personality. Shot in cinéma vérité style, HASTA NUNCA takes a deeper look at one of Latin America’s under-represented countries, carefully touching upon local themes like the lingering effects of the dictatorship and the illegality of abortion. Perceptive, multi-faceted, and slyly inventive, it interweaves documentary and fiction, scripted narrative and improvisation, and is as much a portrait of Montevideo as it is the story of one of its chroniclers.
