POST TENEBRAS LUX, (LIGHT AFTER DARKNESS)  

Palm d’ Or, festival Cannes 2012

POST TENEBRAS LUX ("light after darkness") is the story of an upscale, urban family, whose dynamic is shaken after a move to the Mexican countryside. It’s a stunningly shot, impressionistic, psychological portrait of a family and its place within the often unforgiving world.  Reygadas utilizes a series of ominous imagery: a haunting evening at dusk as Reygadas's real-life daughter wanders a muddy field filled with farm animals, amidst the threat of thunder and lightning; a glowing-red demon gliding through the rooms of a home; a husband and wife visiting a swingers' bathhouse with rooms named after famous philosophers. By turns entrancing and mystifying, POST TENEBRAS LUX explores the primal conflicts of the human condition.
