LOS TALLOS AMARGOS

1956 / 90min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: FERNANDO AYALA

CAST: CARLOS CORES, AíDA LUZ, JULIA SANDOVAL

In the 1940s and 50s the Argentine film industry was as technically sophisticated as any in the Americas, and Ayala’s noir, a headlong plunge into the troubled conscience and warped psyche of a journalist haunted by the memory of committing murder, is a preeminent example of the national cinematographic genius at work, stunningly shot by Ricardo Younis, an apprentice of Gregg Toland.

Restored by UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding provided by Film Noir Foundation.

Los Tallos Amargos is screening as part of the series UCLA Festival of Preservation. Click here for more info.
