The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced today Sounds Like Music: The Films of Martín Rejtman (May 13-19). Hailed as one of the founding fathers of New Argentine Cinema, the series puts a spotlight on his illustrious 28-year career starting with his 1992 debut feature Rapado. The offbeat minimalist, youthful comedy, which he wrote and directed, single-handedly revitalized Argentine narrative film in the 1990s and established a break from the politically oriented films that was shaping much of Argentine cinema that resulted from the nation’s many years of dictatorship. Born in Buenos Aires, he spent time as a student of New York University’s film program, where he started out directing short films. The five contemporary movies he’s made since are models of stylistic precision, narrative structure, and comic pacing, and his works have been compared to notable directors like Akerman, Jarmusch, Bresson and Tati.
