Winning him the Best Director prize at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, Carlos Reygadas' dazzling new film is ostensibly about an urban family living in the Mexican countryside, but quickly veers away from any sort of strict narrative coherence toward a stunning state of abstraction. Emotionally charged and aesthetically astounding from start to finish, this film stands as the controversial crowning achievement in Mexican art cinema to date. Event includes Q&A with Director Carlos Reygadas. Presented in conjunction with Frida & Diego exhibition at the High.
