Winner of the Best Director prize of the 65th Cannes Film Festival, "Post Tenebras Lux" further establishes Carlos Reygadas as a distinctive voice in contemporary Mexican cinema. The film details the life of Juan and Natalia, a wealthy couple living in a stunning house in the country with their two little children (played by Reygadas' own children) and their pack of dogs. The family hires and trusts the local townsmen with help around the house, including childcare, construction and security. When an employee they considered a friend backstabs Juan, chaos enters the household.
