After a shocking incident upends her family life and marriage to a tempestuous choreographer, reggaeton dancer Ema sets out on an odyssey of personal liberation in this incendiary drama about art, desire, and the modern family. From world-class director Pablo Larraín comes another psychologically acute exhumation of Latin American life under restriction, featuring an unforgettable heroine who is determined to move freely through the world as she electrifies everyone and everything around her.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)
