Carlos Reygadas in person on December 13!
Last year, YBCA was honored to host Mexican filmmaker Carlos Reygadas and screen his two feature films, Japon and Battle in Heaven. Reygadas is one of the most gifted, intense and provocative filmmakers of the present moment. Reygadas will join us again on Dec 13 for the first of two premiere screenings of his newest film, Silent Light (Stellet Licht), which won the Jury Prize at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival and serves as Mexico’s submission for the foreign-language Oscar. An inciting and visually arresting work, it centers on the indiscretions committed by the patriarch of a Mennonite family living in rural Mexico. Reygadas has once again combined breathtaking landscapes and hypnotic performances to produce a masterpiece. (2007, 144 min, 35 mm)
