Silent Light
(Carlos Reygadas, Mexico/France/Netherlands/Germany, 2007, 35mm, 127 min)

Silent Light is a meditative story about one man's inescapable, passionate love for two women, and the spiritual crises and redemption that follow. The film's emotional purity is linked to the community it portrays: a group of pacifist Mennonites who have resided in the Mexican state of Chihuahua since the 1920s. Much of the film's power is generated by its cast of Mennonite nonactors, who appear to live and breathe the deep convictions of their faith and traditions, lending a documentary-like feel to this poetic work. Reygadas' film is indebted to Carl Dreyer's 1954 masterpiece Ordet, with which it shares a profound and deeply felt belief in the sublime and the miraculous.

"I've seen Silent Light three times - and find it more pleasurable and touching with each viewing". - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

"I was amazed by Silent Light - the setting, the language, the delicacy of the interactions between the people on screen, the drama of redemption. And most of all by Carlos Reygada's extraordinarily rich sense of cinema, evident in every frame. A surprising picture, and a very moving one as well". - Martin Scorsese

Screens with short film "Chronicles of a Professional Eulogist Field Report No. 3"
