Post Tenebras Lux (2012)
Saturday, April 27, 8 p.m., Rich Theatre
Winning him the Best Director prize at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, Carlos Reygadas's dazzling new film continues to explore themes of sex and violence in the natural world. Ostensibly the story of an urban family living in the Mexican countryside, Post Tenebras Lux quickly veers away from any sort of narrative coherence toward a stunning state of abstraction described as "tender, touching, and even oddly thrilling in its bold imagery and determination to take the path less travelled" by The Guardian's Xan Brooks. Emotionally charged and aesthetically astounding from start to finish, this film stands as the controversial crowning achievement in Mexican art cinema to date. We are proud to be premiering the film in Atlanta and honored to have Mr. Reygadas join us after the screening for a discussion about his latest groundbreaking work and his magnificent career.
