GENRE: Drama

SYNOPSIS:
Silent Light tells the story of Johan, a married man who against the laws of his faith and traditional beliefs, falls in love with another woman, thus facing an internal dilemma, whether to betray his wife, the woman he once loved and disrupt the apparent stability of the community or sacrifice his true love and future happiness.

Sublimely shot, entirely on location in the Mexican Mennonite community near Chihuahua, Silent Light opens with what is arguably the single most remarkable shot of the year; dawn breaking over the rural landscape, Reygadas′s control of image and sound reconfirm his position as one of cinema′s most distinctive auteurs.
