Presentation of Mexican Film “Post Tenebras Lux” May 29 -June 2

Cine+Mas SF is proud to be co-presenting this film with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

The new film by maverick Mexican filmmaker Carlos Reygadas is his most personal and challenging work to date. Post Tenebras Lux (“After darkness, light” in Latin) is a disorienting, kaleidoscopic, and visually stunning vision of a family torn between compassion and violence. It completely divided audiences at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, where Reygadas was awarded Best Director. (2012, 120 min, DCP)
