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.
