Post Tenebras Lux (After Darkness, Light)

France, Germany, Mexico, Netherlands | 2012 | Carlos Reygadas

Post Tenebras Lux (After Darkness, Light)

The new film from Mexico’s most provocative auteur Carlos Reygadas (Silent Light, Battle in Heaven) is a semi-autobiographical, Tarkovskian dreamscape full of musings and memories, fears, fantasies, and forebodings. The story centers on an affluent man who has moved his wife and two young children to a new house in the remote Mexican countryside. There he struggles with demons and dualities: tranquility and violence, privilege and poverty, guilt and salvation. Reygadas’ meanings will be debated for years, but there’s no denying his astonishing command of cinema. Essential viewing! “A poetic, psychedelic rhapsody in which the director’s tendencies towards abstract expressionism are allowed off the leash...Haunted by the twin impulses to experiment and transgress.” –Sight & Sound
