In many ways, Reygadas’s latest project, Our Time, picks up where his previous one, Post tenebras lux, left off. In his new film, Reygadas and real-life wife Natalia López play a married couple (Juan and Ester) who live with their kids on a ranch in the country. They have an open relationship, and things are fine until Ester actually falls in love with another man and stops sharing details of this affair with Juan. Juan immediately becomes jealous, pulling apart the delicate balance of their relationship and otherwise peaceful life. (173 mins., DCP)
After the screening, Reygadas joins us for a conversation moderated by film scholar Laura Podalsky of Ohio State’s Department of Spanish and Portuguese and Film Studies Program.
