Pablo Larraín, the award winning director of Jackie, Neruda and No, returns with Ema, another surprising and unique cinematic piece of art.
Ema, who was once happily married to the choreographer of modern dance company she was the star of, has her family life shaken to the core after a shocking event. In an act of self liberation, Ema goes on a personal odyssey and discovers herself.
The film is a sweeping and energetic drama about art, passion, sexuality and the modern family showing bisexuality and pansexuality as it has never been seen on the big screen before.
