29th SGIFF: Masterclass | Carlos Reygadas


Described as the ‘one-man third wave of Mexican cinema’, filmmaker Carlos Reygadas is a leading voice in contemporary Mexican cinema. Known for his critically acclaimed works Japón, Silent Light and Battle in Heaven, his films channel the sensations, dreams and spiritual journeys of his characters, evoking such themes as love, suffering, death and the meaning of life. Discover Reygadas’s cinematic influences, aesthetic theories and hopes for the future of Mexican cinema.

Mexican auteur Carlos Reygadas’s films take a deep dive into expressionistic neo-realism. Reygadas made four short films in Belgium before filming the feature Japón (2002), which received a Special Mention for the Caméra d’Or prize at Cannes Film Festival. Reygadas’s success at Cannes has continued throughout his career, as he premiered Battle in Heaven (2005) in competition, won the Jury Prize for Silent Light (2007) and won Best Director for Post Tenebras Lux (2012).
