Zama, an officer of the Spanish Crown born in South America awaits a letter from the King that will grant him a transfer out of his sleepy town. Stuck in a delicate limbo, Zama must obediently dedicate himself to every task asked of him but the Governors that come and go as he patiently waits. As he begins to lose hope, recognising he is being side-lined in favour of the Spanish-born elite, he tags on to a group of soldiers on the hunt for a dangerous bandit.

This intoxicating drama is masterfully funny and disarmingly bizarre, offering scathing insight into colonialism and class dynamics.
