To accompany the Museum’s Caja de visiones exhibit (https://www.mmoca.org/art/caja-de-visiones), Spotlight presents the Madison theatrical premiere of one the most accomplished and acclaimed Mexican films of recent years. At the US-Mexico border, a mother in search of her missing son encounters a young man recently deported from America. Together, they embark on an odyssey through the country’s most remote and dangerous regions. Winner of multiple awards at the Sundance Film Festival, Identifying Features “combines stunning cinematography, evocative sound design and hints of magical realism to create a visionary work of devastating power” (Sight & Sound).
Masks are required indoors and when interacting with Museum staff. Masks are highly encouraged outdoors, especially when social distancing cannot be easily maintained.
A program of MMoCA’s education department, Spotlight Cinema is curated by Mike King and generously funded by an anonymous donor, maihaus, and Venture Investors, LLC.
